Level 2: Security Guard

Wanting to work as a Security Officer in retail or offices 

For those considering this Security Guarding Course it is our recommendation from extensive experience within the Private Security Industry to instead undertake the Level 2: Door Supervisor Course

Why: Those who are successful in the Door Supervisor Course are legally allowed to work in more roles including those of a Security Guard and within Licensed premises such as Bars/Clubs/Festivals. However, individuals completing the Security Guard Course will find that it is illegal for you to work in a Door Supervisor role.
