A Responsible Service of Gambling certificate (sometimes called a Responsible Conduct of Gambling certificate) is a useful qualification to hold as it opens many employment doors. In Australia, it’s a legal requirement for individuals to obtain this certificate if they wish to work in the gambling industry.
This qualification goes beyond simply learning about the rules and regulations of responsible gambling, it also teaches individuals how to identify problem gambling, dealing with difficult situations, and harm minimisation strategies.
In several states, it’s now possible to complete an RSG online. At Express Online Training, we offer an RCG/RSG Australia Online that can be used for work in Queensland, Western Australia, and the Northern Territory.
There are many benefits to completing an RSG online course. In today’s article, we cover several of the benefits of these online courses, and why you might like to consider studying an RSG/RCG online course.
Can you do your RCG online?
In certain states and territories of Australia, it’s possible to complete your RCG or RSG online. Express Online Training provides the RCG/RSG Australia Online course for those interested in working within the gambling industry. Along with this certificate, we also offer individual courses that can be undertaken. These are the RCG/RSG Online QLD, the RCG/RSG Online WA, and the RCG/RSG Online NT. Each of these courses can be fully completed online, without needing to be in a face-to-face classroom. This provides convenience for individuals looking to gain this qualification, as it can be done from the comfort of their own home.
Is RCG the same as RSG?
Yes, an RCG is the same as an RSG. The RCG stands for Responsible Conduct of Gambling, while the RSG stands for Responsible Service of Gambling. These certifications are simply referred to by different names depending on the state or territory they’re obtained in.
Benefits of completing an RSG online course
Completing an RSG online course has several benefits for individuals looking to work in the gambling industry. These include:
With an online course, you can complete your training at your own pace. This provides a convenient option for those that work long hours, have family commitments, or simply prefer to study in their own time. Online courses also allow students to complete their training from anywhere.
No travel needed
For those that live away in a rural location, or who don’t have access to a vehicle or transportation, not needing to attend in-person classes can be a game changer. Online courses allow students to access training materials from any place that has an internet connection.
Another benefit of completing this course online is the flexibility it provides. At Express Online Training, our online RSG courses can be completed at any time of the day or night. They’re also designed to work across all devices (including phones, tablets, and computers), and can be stopped and resumed at any time. The progress you make in the course is automatically saved, so you can easily switch devices as needed.
Express Online Training provides fully qualified, local support for our RSG and RCG courses. We also have extended support hours, 7 days a week to accommodate those that will be completing their course outside of standard 9-5 hours. Our team of qualified trainers and assessors will do their best to answer any questions you may have as you work through your course.
RSA and RSG online options
We also offer RSA + RSG bundles for those looking to complete both courses. For several states (such as Queensland), you can complete the RSA + RSG online as part of a package deal with Express Online Training. Our bundles are a convenient option for those who need to complete both courses for their employment, as many jobs in the hospitality and gaming industries require both qualifications. Additionally, our bundles offer a discounted price compared to purchasing the courses separately. You can also combine this course bundle with the COVID safety certificate.
Do RSG certificates expire?
Whether or not an RSG certificate expires will depend on the state or territory that issues it. In Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia, and Tasmania, once you receive your Statement of Attainment for the RSG, it does not expire. In New South Wales, your RCG competency card will need to be renewed every 5 years. In the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory, the RCG is valid for 3 years from completion date. For the RSG in Victoria, you’ll need to complete a refresher every 3 years. Check with your employer or state authority to confirm the expiry date for your specific certificate.
