Licensee Training Training


Recent legislative* change means that the club industry is required to obtain mandatory licensee training through Liquor & Gaming NSW approved courses.

The Licensee and Advanced Licensee training courses are for licensees, approved managers and club secretaries, so you are better prepared for the challenges of operating a venue, while ensuring a vibrant and safe hospitality scene.

Advanced Licensee training is an additional course for those who may operate a business in a higher risk environment, such as venues authorised to trade after midnight.

Licensees and approved managers applying for a new liquor licence or transfer of an existing licence to another person or premise from 1 September 2018.

Existing licensees and approved managers, from 1 April 2019, align to the renewal of your existing NSW competency card.



Workshop overview:
Overview of liquor regulation in NSW
Managing your liquor licence
Your responsibilities to manage alcohol related harm
Best practice strategies to prevent alcohol related harm
Compliance and enforcement


Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA)
Successful completion of the Licensee Training will result in the automatic renewal of a current RSA endorsement on the recognised competency card.

Responsible Conduct of Gambling (RCG)
a) A student wishing to renew a current RCG endorsement on the recognised competency card completes the required RCG refresher training through Barringtons prior to completing the Licensee course.


b) Students that do not wish to renew a current RCG endorsement must surrender this endorsement by completing the RCG Declaration Form. Approved training providers must upload via the online course management portal prior to lodging the Licensee course.

Once you’ve successfully completed the Licensee course you will receive an interim certificate which is valid for 90 days and is valid for duties immediately.


Advanced Licensee training will follow on the consecutive day after the Licensee training. Click here for Advanced Licensee training dates.
