In ACT Food Handlers are not required to undertake any specific training but there is a general obligation under the Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) that everyone involved in the production, preparation, handling and transport of food be trained to a level commensurate with their responsibilites. Most councils recognise completion of SITXOHS001A - Follow Workplace Hygiene Procedures as meeting the FSANZ requirements for food handler training.

ACT Food Safety Supervisor Training Requirements

To address the emerging gaps in food safety knowledge, the ACT has recently amended their laws so that all registered food businesses will be required to appoint a Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) to their business by August 2013. A FSS is person who has advanced training and knowledge in food safety and has the ability to oversee the safe handling of food.

All Food Safety Supervisor's are required to complete food safety training from a Registered Training Organisation. The course of training to obtain the Food Safety Supevisors Certificate can include the Units of Competency SITXOHS002A and SITXFSA001A or SIRRFSA001A. Australian Online College offers the first two units as a package which meets these requirements.

ACT RCG Training Requirements

The ACT Gambling and Racing Commission Code of Practice requires all staff who are directly involved in providing gambling services and persons who supervise these staff must undergo approved training in the Responsible Conduct of Gambling (or Gaming). 


Where new staff are employed and have not undertaken the appropriate training, the employer (licensee) must seek from the Commission a temporary exemption to cover the period prior to these persons undertaking the course.


The Code also provides that relevant staff must undergo a training course every five years.

To gain employment in the ACT's only casino, a valid Casino Employee Licence (Licence) must be gained. Licence's are issues by the ACT Gambling and Racing Commisison.The issue of a Licence serves both the Government and public interest in helping to ensure that only honest and trustworthy people of good character are employed within the casino industry in the ACT.


 You will need to obtain a Licence for casino positions which involve the following:

Ø      the conduct of gaming;

Ø      Cash Desk operations;

Ø      Security and Surveillance duties;

Ø      the operation, maintenance, construction or repair of gaming equipment; or

Ø      a position of management or supervision .

In ACT training for this Licence must be conducted face-to-face as online training is not permitted.

The online RSG training offered by the Australian Online College does not meet the legislative requirements for RCG training in ACT.
