The only reputable security training organisations I can think of in Melbourne is Complex Institute, International Security Training Academy and perhaps Kangan Institute of TAFE. I would probably avoid anywhere else from my understanding.

hi

There are many poor Security Training Organizations out there that are only interested in making money and turning over students.i

Training and gaining a Security license is only an introduction into the Industry, you have to work in the field to get exposure and experience.

It is on going and additional training you have to consider because you forget most of the information you have been taught and you have to keep your self updated on the changes and amendments made to the industry.

You might think you only get paid x amount of $money$ so why even bother, because this is what separates a professional person from a average person.

People should also be made aware that training providers are responsible for your actions within reason, this action is called "Vicarious Liability" where your actions could be seen to be a direct result of the training you received in order to enter the industry.

This is not an excuse for any action which you perform whilst employed as a security officer but more a bargaining chip to be used to obtain proper training. Ask your training establishment if they are aware of vicarious liability for the training which they provide to you.

Any proper and self respecting RTO will already be aware of this and will train you accordingly.

HI All

I have been involved in the security industry for over 20 years and have seen all standards of security training courses and guards that are churned out from them.

Most security training companies fail to prepare new security guards for the jobs at hand. If you are intending to join the industry make sure you get a training company that actually gives you real self defence training (hands on- not just a video) and include how to deal with conflict ranging from shoplifters, break ins, and drug affected individuals.

If you just go for the cheapest course you could be missing vital information and be injured as a result of you lack of knowledge.

Think long term and get properly trained, after all its your life not thiers.
