CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations

Security Guard & Crowd Controller

The CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations qualification provides you with the skills and accreditation you need to work in the security industry as a non-armed security guard or crowd controller. It will give you the skills to manage the security and safety of others in a variety of circumstances, including guarding and patrolling a privately owned property. You’ll also be qualified to provide security at a licenced venue, including tasks such as screening customers on entry, monitoring the behaviour of patrons, and escorting people off the premises when required.

In addition, the CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations serves as a gateway to further training for more specialised professional security roles, such as:

  • Armed guard
  • Cash-in-transit
  • Close personal protection
  • Operations in control rooms
  • Handling guard dogs

Skills Training College’s CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations is accredited throughout Australia. However, licensing requirements vary from state to state, so it’s always worth checking your region’s local security licensing regulations. For more details, you can contact us.
