If you’re going to work in a place that serves alcohol or provides gambling services, you'll need to have completed training in Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) and/or Responsible Conduct of Gambling (RCG).

After you've completed your training and received your NSW RSA and/or RCG Interim Certificate(s), you need to apply for your RSA/RCG photo competency card. You can do this at service centres, digital stores and selected Roads and Maritime Services motor registries.

Once you have your RSA or RCG competency card you can access it digitally using your mobile phone or tablet device. You'll need to have a MyServiceNSW account and the latest version of the Service NSW app. Then you'll need to link your MyService NSW Account to the Liquor & Gaming NSW.

  • Your RSA or RCG Interim Certificate, issued by an approved NSW training provider.
  • Your 100 points of ID documents – see the back of the Interim Certificate for acceptable document types, and ensure the details on each Interim Certificate match your ID documents exactly. If any of the details are incorrect, complete the Interim certificate amendment – PDF and submit it to Liquor & Gaming NSW, who'll issue you with a replacement Interim Certificate.
  • If you've changed your name from what is shown on your identity documents, you'll need to provide a change of name certificate or marriage certificate (Australian, or overseas with translation).
