What is an RSG Certificate?

If you plan to work in an establishment that offers gambling, you need a statement of attainment. In New South Wales, the mandatory certification required is Undertake responsible conduct of gambling (RCG). In all other Australian states and territories, Provide responsible gambling services (RSG) certificate is the recognised qualification.

Our training packages will provide the knowledge and skills needed for providing responsible service of gambling to customers and patrons safely and legally. You’ll also learn how to provide information to customers who require assistance with gambling problems, and receive your statement of attainment the same day.

Getting an RSG / RCG certificate is an excellent way to gain employment quickly in the hospitality industry, as gambling laws are strict. These training certificates for gaming managers or employees may be required at any venue where staff service gambling patrons. Even if these certifications don’t help you earn higher wages, they will still give your resume some extra mileage when applying for jobs at venues that require it – and those are most of them!

Note: It is likely that if you are seeking responsible service of gambling, you will also benefit from alcohol services training in the form of a Responsible service of alcohol certificate (RSA course). Both the Responsible gambling services and Responsible service of alcohol training can be conducted as online courses with Barista Courses Australia with a statement of attainment provided on the same day. 

Why do I need an RSG Certificate?

The State governments of Australia all have different regulations surrounding the responsible gambling services course in the hospitality industry.

Many states don’t require you to be certified in Provide responsible gambling services until after you start the job. However, it is worth doing RSG / RCG training off your own back before applying for a related job in the industry. Many
