A security licence is a doorway to a rewarding career where you could be called upon to assist in an initial emergency response, critical incidents or deter and prevent crime at high risk facilities.

Security personnel come from diverse backgrounds and age groups, but the one thing they all have in common is a commitment to preserving safety and security within their area of responsibility. We can help you get on your way to an exciting new future.

Taught at our Yallourn campus on a full-time basis for 18 days, you’ll be qualified in no time and ready to begin working in a number of areas.
