Currently RSA trained in NSW is recognised in most other states of Australia. If you are from outside NSW and have an RSA Certificate from another state you can do the RSA with TCP and we will give you a $10 discount when you bring in your other Certificate as proof.

Can I still work while I am waiting for my Competency card?

Do I need RSA and RCG outside of NSW?

An OLGR Competency Card for RSA and RCG is mandatory in NSW. The RSA SITHFAB0098 Statement of Attainment is a nationally recognised unit of competency from the Cert II Hospitality this is accepted in WA, NT & SA. In Queensland a QLD OLGR RSA certificate is mandatory. In Victoria & Tasmania you must have a Certificate issued from an RTO approved in that state therefore in all those states you will need to attend another course. Expiring certificates: All RSA/RCG certs that were issued before 2007 have expired. Avoid the fine and get recertified.

How long does it take to get my Certificate?

If the course is taken online, you can download your Certificate of Attainment instantly upon completion of the course. This is for the following states:

Why can I do my RSA online for everywhere accept NSW?

On 28th January 2014, the NSW Government released a statement saying that the online RSA course for NSW could be revoked. It was discussed in Parliament the next day. Although there has been no official notification that this proposal has been implemented as a result of those discussions, TCP TRAINING, along with many other companies who offered the NSW course online, have made the decision to offer a classroom course as an alternative until a final decision has been made. The reason for this is, if the course is revoked, anyone who has enrolled in the course but not yet completed the course, would not qualify for a certificate. We don’t want you to miss out on your certificate.

If the course permits, you may bring a friend along to the course or, alternatively, you can phone the National Translation service to book an interpreter. Visit the Immigration website for more information about help with translating.
