Validating Student Identity using Webcam

During this course and in order to validate the identity of the student for whom the final certificate will be issued, Liquor & Gaming NSW require the provider to assure the identity of the student.

In order to satisfy this requirement, photographs will be taken periodically and randomly via your webcam and only whilst the student is logged in and completing a task within the course.

Before commencing each new task in the course, students may be prompted to ‘allow’ the use of their webcam/camera.

Can I work straight after completing my course?

Once you have completed and passed your course it will take between 24 and 48 hours for you to receive your ‘interim certificate’ after we process. This certificate will enable you to work on licenced premises for 90 days. During this time, you must visit Service NSW to have your photo taken for your Photo Competency Card to be produced and sent out which takes 3-4 weeks. See here for more information about applying for your card.
