This course uses a blended method of delivery, including both online and face-to-face elements. The face-to-face component of the training takes place as a series of six full-day workshops, each running from 9am to 5pm. Each of the sessions is conducted by an experienced professional security trainer and will consist of:

  • Classroom-based training – both theory and practice
  • An engaging learning environment for invaluable skills such as defence tactics, negotiating conflict, controlling a crowd, and much more

The online learning component of the course may be completed from home at your own pace, but you must have completed the content before taking part in the face-to-face training. The online learning content consists of:

  • Multiple choice questions
  • Reading materials
  • Interactive learning modules

You should take note that if you have previously taken part in an accredited HLTAID011 Provide First Aid training course (and your certificate is still current), then you only need to attend five of the six days, as you have already completed one day of the course content.

Course Details

Pre-Requisites and Entry requirements

The CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations certificate has no formal prerequisites or required learning. However, participants must be able to apply for a security licence. This requires, among other things, that you have not had a recorded conviction of any disqualifying offence within the last ten years.

Minimum Age:

To take part in the course, participants must be a legal adult – aged 18 years or older.

Language, Learning & Numeracy

To complete the course, students must have appropriate fluency in written and spoken English, and numeracy skills of a suitable level to work in the private security industry. When undertaking your pre-training review, you will be provided with a language, learning & numeracy assessment to determine your current level of literacy and numeracy and assess whether the training is suitable for you.

Security is a field of work requiring a certain level of physical fitness, and this requirement is reflected in the training. To take part in the CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations course, participants should be physically fit and able, with a good range of vision and hearing. They should also be able to remain on their feet for hours at a time, perform a range of physical tasks, and respond quickly to signs of trouble.
