Due to the recent change in Laws by the NSW Parliament midnight 4th of February 2014 was the cut off for the old online program pending the release of the new RSA Online Program. Registrations are suspended until the new program are re-opened.

Government changes approved 1 July now mean we are one of the first Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) to be approved to deliver the official NSW Office of Liquor Gaming and Racing RSA course online!

Eliminate the hassle of face-to-face training and complete your NSW Responsible Service of Alcohol Certificate conveniently from home or office anytime 24/7.


Here’s how it works (This is the process required by OLGR):

Step 1:  Register and pay for your online course;

Step 2:  Complete your online course at your own pace and from the convenience of home;

Step 3:  Once you’ve completed the course and the online assessments, you’ll receive a downloadable Certificate of Completion and information regarding identity confirmation requirements;

Step 4:  On receipt of your identification documents, your details will be entered into the OLGR NSW database and your Interim Certificate will be emailed to you (within 1-2 business days);

Step 5:  Book a time to get your Photo Card at your nearest Post Office: To do this, go to http://www.olgr.nsw.gov.au/photocard.asp or call 137 678 to find your nearest participating Australia Post outlet and to book an appointment. Please note: NOT all Australia Post outlets can process photo competency card applications. So we would advise you to check first!

Step 6:  Get your ID documents ready. In order for Australia Post to process your Photocard application you will need to have your OLGR Interim Certificate,  AND the correct documents to prove your identity.
These must be original documents to the value of at least 100 points that prove your identity. Details of acceptable documents are listed on your interim certificate

Step 7:  Go to your Australia Post interview with the documents listed in Step 6 above;

• Attend the interview in person (other people can’t apply for the photo competency card for you);

• Take along your OLGR Interim Certificate;

• Bring the right documents that prove your identity (100 points or more). If you don’t do this, your application can’t be processed by Australia Post


Your photo will be taken at Australia Post as part of the application process. Your Photocard will be ordered and sent to you within 3 weeks. You have 90 days to get your OLGR Interim Certificate replaced with your Photocard.

Please refer to the OLGR NSW Student Page for further information http://www.olgr.nsw.gov.au/photocard_student.asp
