Responsible Conduct of Gambling (RCG)
It is a condition of every special employee licence that the individual must undertake a Responsible Conduct of Gambling course approved by the Tasmanian Liquor and Gaming Commission within three months of being licensed.
The Responsible Conduct of Gambling course involves a thorough knowledge of the Tasmanian Gambling Exclusion Scheme. Information regarding the scheme and the online database is available here.

The Commission will only recognise courses that deliver the national competency SITHGAM201 - Provide responsible gambling services conducted by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), as prerequisite training for special employee licences.
The Commission requires that all special employees be retrained in the new course once their existing RCG qualification (received by way of the current THA or Skills Institute course) is more than five years old.
