SITHGAM001 Provide Responsible Service of Gambling


SITHGAM001 Provide Responsible Service of Gambling is a nationally recognised and accredited unit of competency required by entrants to the gaming sector. In Queensland, all persons who carry out gaming duties or gaming tasks within a hotel or club must complete RSG training within three months of starting employment. The responsibility for ensuring employees working at licensed venues have RSG certification lies with the licensee.  A Statement of Attainment is issued upon successful completion. This competency is recognised in some other Australian jurisdictions.


Course Description

QHA offers nationally recognised training in SITHGAM001 Provide Responsible Service of Gambling (RSG) in both online and face to face delivery formats for persons who are involved in the sale and service of gambling on licensed premises. The focus of this course is relevant Queensland regulations, licensing requirements and responsible service of gambling principles. This includes how to identify and assist customers who may have a potential problem gambling issue.

There are two elements (sections) to this course:

1. Implement responsible gambling practices
2. Provide information and assistance to customers about problem gambling


To complete online enrolment, participants will be registered through our web-based eLearning Management System and and agree to comply with assessment submission guidelines. The education regulator requires us to collect your personal particulars and information relating to your schooling and education qualifications.

Course Delivery

The online training is an entry level course, self-paced and total time to complete is dependent on pre-existing skills and knowledge. Minimum completion time for online RSG is 3.50 hours.

Face to face delivery is provided via in-house courses on request (usually to schools) and as such, online submissions are not required. LLN, identification, and assessments are all conducted as a component of delivery. Minimum completion time for face-to-face RSG is 4.00 hours.


Assessment for this course consists of a combination of multiple choice, true or false and short answer questions, and practical activities. This includes students demonstrating to trainers/assessors that they have gained appropriate knowledge and skills as outlined in the course performance criteria, such as identifying problem gambling and the services available to assist a person with a gambling problem in a simulated industry environment.

Note: Assessment for the online RSG (Final Submission) includes uploading a short video of the student demonstrating the above (identifying problem gambling and describing available services) to a given scenario. 

More information about the assessments is contained in the Introduction part of the course.      

Certificate (Statement of Attainment)

Upon successful completion of the online RSG, you will be awarded a Statement of Attainment for SITHGAM001 Provide Responsible Service of Gambling which you will access through the Learner Portal. This nationally recognised qualification does not expire in Queensland, so periodic recertification is not required although best practice suggests refresher training should be undertaken from time to time. 

Although this is a nationally recognised training competency, it is not accepted as a full RSG qualification in some states. This unit of competency forms part of a national qualification package which includes Certificate III in Hospitality and others. Classroom based RSG Statements of Attainment are forwarded in bulk to the particular school. 


For online students, any electronic communication device (e.g. PC/laptop/tablet/smartphone) with a web browser and internet access is required to enter our Learner Portal and complete the online training course and assessments. You will need an email address that is unique to you.

For some practical assessment activities (as mentioned above) students will need to access a smartphone to film the activity for a trainer/assessor to properly assess your skills. 

For face to face training, all resources such as a workbook and stationery will be supplied. Online participants are provided access to resources electronically which includes all learning materials, reference resources, and assessment materials required to successfully complete this hospitality competency.
