New licensee training courses were introduced in New South Wales in 2018, to support licensees in meeting their obligations under the NSW liquor laws, while ensuring a vibrant and safe venue.

Anyone who was approved as a licensee, manager or club secretary before 1 September 2018, or after this date and have not completed licensee training as required, must act this week to complete the training before 1 April 2024.

Liquor and Gaming NSW said: “Failing to complete the training before that date may represent an offence, and we will be undertaking a compliance campaign focused on ensuring that training is completed and investigating any breaches of the training requirements.”

If you are a new licensee, you will need to ensure you have completed an RSA course and obtained an RSA endorsement on your competency card before undertaking licensee training.

Find an approved training provider now and complete the training to remain compliant with your licence. 

Further information regarding NSW Licensee training courses is available on the Liquor and Gaming NSW website.
