In September 2018, Liquor and Gaming New South Wales introduced a new mandatory course for most Licensees and Responsible Managers of licensed venues across NSW. This course is mandatory for most owners (Licensees) and management staff involved in the service of liquor in NSW Pubs, Clubs, Hotels, Bottle Shops, Restaurants, Wine Bars, Night Clubs, Wineries, Licensed Cafes etc.
Australian Liquor Training, a registered brand of RTO Urban E-Learning, is proud to offer one of the first completely ONLINE* courses in NSW. By online, we do not mean "virtual classroom" (although we do have that option as well), we mean a fully online* course you can complete from home or your office at your own convenient time(s), without having to book into a full-day "class". You can even complete the course in smaller time chunks - our system remembers where you are up to!
* Note: Even though the course content is fully online, you will be required to complete a live video verbal assessment with one of our assessors at the end of the course.
The course provides the professional certified training for the responsible operation of NSW licensed venues and includes:

You can even do an hour or so each day or night - our system remembers where you got up to.

About our Fully Online Course:
* RCG Competency Renewal.
You will be required to confirm one of the following as part of your Licensee training:
a) you do not have the RCG competency
b) you have the RCG competency but do not wish to renew it, or
c) you wish the renew your RCG competency and have completed the L&GNSW renewal course. You MUST complete the RCG renewal before you enrol for your Licensee training and complete the Licensee training within 90 days of renewal.
You can renew your card in a few easy steps:
1) Receive the renewal reminder, link, and instructions on completing the online refresher course. Ensure your details are kept up-to-date to receive the renewal reminders.
2) Complete the Liquor & Gaming NSW (L&GNSW) online refresher training on any device.
3) Pay the renewal fee and receive a renewal interim certificate by email.
4) Upload your certificate when prompted as part of your Licensee training.
L&GNSW is the only provider of the online refresher training course. You cannot renew your card by doing a course with a registered training provider of RSA/RCG courses. It will not extend the validity of your competency card. This could affect your ability to work in a licensed premises.
We strongly recommend that you complete the online refresher course and renew your competencies before they expire so you can continue working. You cannot work in the industry once your card expires. Once your card expires the online renewal has a grace period of 28 days. You can complete your online refresher training during this grace period. Once your refresher training has been completed you can work again. If you don't renew your competencies in this time you will need to do the full course through an approved training provider of RSA/RCG courses to continue working in the industry.
