Victorian gaming venue staff must complete approved Responsible Service of Gaming (RSG) training.
RSG training provides gaming staff information and skills so they can provide gaming responsibly.
Training requirements for new gaming staff
You must complete two modules:
- Module 1 – New staff online module (2-3 hours learning online) within one month of starting work in a gaming venue. You can complete the module before starting work if you choose.
- Module 2 – New staff face-to-face module (delivered in gaming venues) within six months of starting work in a gaming venue. We recommend that you complete this module after starting work.
You do not need to:
- complete training before beginning work or as a condition of securing a new job
- pay for the training. It is provided free of charge.
Staff who completed RSG training before 1 January 2017
If you completed RSG training before 1 January 2017, you will need to complete RSG training for new staff as your refresher training. You will have three years from the date that you completed that previous training to complete both new staff RSG modules.
RSG refresher training
New responsible service of gaming (RSG) refresher training is currently being developed and will commence in 2020. The starting date has not yet been confirmed and more information will be available soon.
If you completed Module 2 – New staff face-to-face module in early 2017, you will be allowed more time to complete the refresher training.
You will not be able to repeat the RSG training for new staff as your refresher training.

How to complete RSG courses
Sessions for face-to-face modules are organised by venue operators. They are provided free of charge in the venue.
We recommend that you:
- complete the online module before the face-to-face training
- bring your online module certificate of completion to the session.
For copies of certificates for all completed RSG training modules, log into your RSG training account.
After completing a face-to-face training module, you will need to log into your account to generate your certificate of completion for the face-to-face training module.
