Have you ever wanted to work in a venue serving alcohol or managing gaming machines but the mandatory training wasn’t offered in your local area?
TAFE Western, through its award winning Connect initiative, is now offering students the opportunity to undertake ‘Responsible Service of Alcohol’ (RSA) and ‘Responsible Conduct of Gambling’ (RCG) training at their local College.
Mr Charlie Cross, TAFE Western’s Manager of Educational Programs said, “TAFE Western Connect will be offering RSA and RCG courses at each of our 24 Colleges through connected classroom video conferencing technology.
“We have listened to the concerns of communities in western NSW and responded by offering more choices in vocational education and training,” said Mr Cross. “Using connected classroom technology will allow us to deliver to small groups of students across a number of regional and remote locations, so they are not disadvantaged.”
“We have worked closely with the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing to gain approval to offer RSA and RCG courses at each of our Colleges and to ensure students receive the highest quality of training.”
The RSA and RCG courses commence this month and Mr Cross encourages anyone interested to contact TAFE Western. “The response so far has been very positive with plenty of interest so potential students should enrol today.”
TAFE Western Connect is an initiative developed by TAFE Western in 2011 to bring a wider range of training choices to the community by offering flexible study options.
In 2014, TAFE Western Connect helped more than 5,354 students gain access to more training choices.
TAFE Western is committed to delivering training to provide individuals with pathways to higher education and employment and to meet the growing needs of regional industry.
Enrolments for all courses being offered at TAFE Western in 2015 are now open. Prospective students should call 1300 823 393 or visit their local college for further information.
