SMART AND SKILLED FEES
This course is government-subsidised, meaning you pay a portion of the full course fee to TAFE NSW and the NSW Government will pay the balance. However, you must meet certain eligibility criteria for this to apply.
Depending on your previous qualifications and experience, your fee may be less than the maximum fee quoted. Your actual fee and eligibility for concession/exemption will be calculated and confirmed during the enrolment process. Payment plans are available through TAFE NSW for Smart and Skilled eligible qualifications.
For further information about eligibility and explanations of the different fee categories, visit Are You Eligible?
You will need to provide for yourself the following resources which you will keep when you complete your study:
Hospitality Uniform consisting of black tailored pants or skirt (no jeans), long sleeved black collared shirt and enclosed black shoes (no runners) approx. $90
Provide responsible service of alcohol (RSA) - SITHFAB002
Provide responsible gambling services (RCG)- SITHGAM001
If you undertake these electives, you will be issued with an interim RSA or RCG certificate on completion. The interim certificate licenses you to work in the industry immediately but is only valid for a short period until you obtain your competency card through Service NSW. There is no cost to collect your competency card as this is included in the mandatory Liquor and Gaming fees of $87 for RSA and $41 for RCG which must be paid at enrolment.
It's important to note that while you can undertake these units to become job ready, you will not be able to serve or sell alcohol or providing gaming services until you are 18 years old.
