The RSA competency card is a legal proof that you are a competent and skilled individual who can serve alcohol responsibly. And while the card lets you work for establishments in the liquor and gaming industry, you must be also aware that you must renew your card every 5 years so that you will be able to continue your work. If you know your RSA – NSW RSA Online – duties you will not have any problems renewing and updating your card. Follow these simple steps below.
Renewing your card
90 days before your card expires, you will be notified that you need to renew your card as soon as possible. The notification and link to the refresher course will be sent to your phone or email address.
- Complete the refresher training, which is available online only through the Liquor and Gaming NSW website, on your mobile device or computer. You cannot renew your card through any other training service provider, and that’s including any registered RSA/RCG training provider.
It should take you about 45 minutes to complete.
- Pay the renewal fee of $40. You will receive a renewal interim certificate through your email.
After completing these steps, a new card will be issued and sent to you by post. You don’t have to go to the nearest Service NSW Centre to get your photo taken or verify your identity.
If you have a digital card, you will be able to see the card’s expiry date on it. The online renewal will be available for 28 days following the expiry date of your card.
If you do not renew your card within this period, and you still wish to work in the industry, you will have to take the full course through an accredited training provider of NSW RSA Online and RCG courses. If found that your card has expired and you are currently working in the industry, you will be fined.
Lastly, make sure that your contact details are up-to-date so that you can be notified of your renewal date. With that said, here is another quick guide to updating your contact details.
