CPP30411 Certificate III in Security Operations

Certificate III in Security Operations is an ideal qualification for those people who wish to obtain a license as a bodyguard or cash transit officer or an existing guard/ person whose employment requires supervisory responsibilities.

It is envisaged that the majority of applicants will already hold either a Certificate II in Security Operations and/or licenses in unarmed guard and crowd control. Given the crossover in units between Certificates II and II in Security, some credit may be applied for holders of validated Certificate II in Security Operations qualifications.

Whether required for bodyguard licensing, cash transit officer or workplace supervisor responsibilities, the Certificate III in Security Operations will increase the knowledge and skills of Security Officers already working within the Security Industry.

There are no entry requirements for this qualification although participants are made aware that in order to obtain a security license in QLD, an applicant must be 18 years of age.
