Frequently Asked Questions

I have travelled internationally in the last 14 days. Should I enrol?


I have a fever, respiratory problems, shortness of breath, a cough and sore throat. Should I come to class?

No. Please defer enrolment until you are well.

Are you a Registered Training Organisation?

What are some of your other requirements I should know about?

In order to be competent in assessments, you will need to possess effective language, communications and interpersonal skills and have the ability to write a range of documentation. 

How are we assessed?

For RSA and RCG, practical skills are assessed in-class through role-plays. Knowledge is tested by written questioning completed in class. From January 1, 2017, if you are booking a package with coffee included, there is online learning involved with your coffee course. This will take 1-2 hours to complete and must be done prior to your class. No Statement of Attainment for coffee will be awarded unless the 76 multiple choice questions are successfully completed. Login details will be provided in your confirmation email.

What student support does CBD College offer?

Our trainers and assessors are both experienced and skilled in giving support to learners and in making reasonable adjustments to training and assessment to accommodate learner needs, where required. Where necessary, our trainers and assessors can make themselves available to meet with students outside scheduled course times. Ongoing support can be obtained by calling CBD College on 1300 616 218 or by emailing info@cbdcollege.edu.au

Should I bring your ID?

Do you have a dedicated booking office?

Yes. As we are one of Sydney's largest vocational trainers and we have a dedicated booking office on level 10 of the Dymocks Building. You do not need to be worried about being turned away because a class is in progress or visiting at a specified time. We look forward to seeing you.

How do I pay for the course?

Payments need to be made for our classes with a credit card online (our site is highly secure - payment is made via the Commonwealth Bank), or call us on 1300 838 962 and pay by credit card over the phone, or by coming to our Sydney office Mon-Fri 9am-5pm at the above address to pay by cash, EFTPOS or credit card.

Is the RSA and RSG photo Competency card included in the course costs for these courses?

Candidates must bring one form of original photo ID on the day of the course (passport, Australian Drivers License or RTA Proof of Age Card). Also bring some writing material if you want to take any notes during the course. Our classes start promptly so don’t be late!

Is there an age limit for your RSA/RCG courses?

There is no age limit for our RSA and RCG courses but note that you are not allowed to work in licensed venues unless you are 18.

Is this valid outside of NSW?

How do I renew my RSA down the track?

The RSA/RCG competency card lasts for five years from the date of passing your first competency. You will need to renew the card before the expiry date on the card. You can now renew your photo competency card for five years by completing online refresher training and paying a $41 renewal fee. If your card is expiring soon, you will be notified by Liquor and Gaming NSW by email and SMS about how to renew and complete the online refresher training. The face to face class is for first-timers only.
