Please note: On 21 January 2019, the training course for Security Officers was updated. The new course CPP31318 Certificate III in Security Operations supersedes and is not equivalent to the previous course CPP30411 Certificate III in Security Operations.

On 18 December 2019, Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) Commissioners agreed to extend the transition period of the CPP30411 Certificate III in Security Operations and CPP20212 Certificate II in Security Operations for learner cohorts in NSW, ACT, Tasmania and Victoria until 1 July 2020.

LRD (Licensing and Regulation Division of the Victoria Police) will continue to accept the CPP30411 when applying for a Private Security Individual Licence with the activity of Unarmed Guard and Cash In Transit until advised otherwise.

When the new courses become available we will immediately update the website. If you would like to be notified please send a request to info@aussolutions.com.au.
