Security Provider Training Update

According to the Queensland Office of Fair Trading, From 21 January 2021, only the approved training which is taken from the training packages CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations, CPP31318 Certificate III in Security Operations and CPP31418 Certificate III in Close Protection Operations will be accepted for security licensing purposes in Queensland. This applies to applicants for a bodyguard, crowd controller, security officer (unarmed), security officer (cash in transit) or security officer (dog patrol) licence.

If you apply for a licence containing any of these functions, or to add one of these functions to an existing security provider licence, you will need to complete the full list of units from the current approved training for each function you apply for.
