25 August 2009    .AN INDEPENDENT Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) inquiry has heard a security guard trainer’s excessive spending was made possible by corruption behind NSW security licensing process.

According to the inquiry, Dru Hyland and his employer have been accused of certifying security guards without any face-to-face teaching, after giving students the answers to assessment questions.

The inquiry revealed guards were even issued first aid certificates without any training in exchange for under the table payments of $100 to $150.

Hyland earned $250 per shift for running the course, and $150 for every student that came through, the inquiry found.

A tapped phone conversation revealed Hyland telling a friend he had earned $150,000 in the five months to December last year.

Counsel assisting the commissioner, Carolyn Davenport SC, said the Auburn-based company became known in the industry for fast-tracking guards through its Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) course as long as individuals or security firms paid course fees of $350 to $500.
The inquiry found Roger Training principal Ahmed Mossani raked in around $1.3 million between August 2007 and April 2009.

28 August 2009    .THE BOSS of corrupt security training company Roger Training Academy admitted his sole interest in his business was making money.

Ahmed Moosani confessed he would hand out industry-recognised certificates signifying training in security guarding if candidates made under-the-table payments of up to $500 to his Sydney firm.

Candidates with certificates from Roger Training would go on to work at Holsworthy army barracks in Sydney, television stations and other organisations.

The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) was told Moosani deposited at least $1.3 million from the scam into a bank account between 2008 and 2009.

Last year, police launched an investigation last year after being tipped off about the firm.

It was removed from the register in March. The hearing will continue.
