Are You Wondering Why You Need to Take RSA Courses?

RSA courses are designed to help employees in certain jobs promote responsible gambling activities in their customers. If you work in a casino, the requirement to take this course and to earn the certification may make sense. However, if you work in a restaurant, a hotel or another similar venue where gambling activities are very limited and if your position is not related to gambling, it may seem rather unnecessary for you to take the course. You may be wondering why you need to go through the effort to get certified.

Many people have been told that they need to take the RSA courses Sydney here, and they are not sure why they need to. A law that was recently passed states that anyone who works in a venue that has even a single pokie on it may be required to take the RSA courses and to earn the certification. Your employer may be requiring you to take the course and to get certified in this area in order to comply with the law. Some people may choose to leave their job and to move to another business that does not have gambling activities on-site, and this is one option available. Keep in mind, however, that the certification will remain active for up to five years. This means that you may qualify to work in other venues if you have the certification. 

The good news about the RSA courses is that they are fairly short in length. It can seem bothersome to take a course that has seemingly little to do with your current line of work, but it is a legal requirement. After you have taken your RSA courses now, you will not have to worry about getting re-certified for up to five years. Therefore, take time to sign up for your class today, and you can quickly cross this item off of your to-do list.  http://www.catch.nsw.edu.au
