Certificate III in Security operations


v4 27 Jan 2013

The Armed Security Guard course provides the requirements to perform the role as an Armed Guard. Armed guards or CIT Officers have the responsibility of escorting and securing cash, bullion, jewelry and other valuables. A CIT Officers tasks may also include the escort of documents as well as servicing, maintenance or re-supplying of ATMs.

You must complete this course and add the Cash-in-Transit function to your Queensland Security Providers Licence to perform these duties.

The demand for these services are on the increase as business owners see the advantage in reduced risk and increased efficiency of contracted Cash-in-Transit Specialists managing this task.

The role of Armed Security Providers may include both uniformed and plain clothes duties. This may include the need to operate either unarmed or armed for more valuable escorts. Armed Guards can either work for a Cash in Transit organisation that provides valuable escort services. Or you can work as a Sole Provider and carry out the provision of this service to your own clients.

Successful students of this course can then go on to attend and study the Security Firearms and Weapons Training course that TALON Education & Training delivers. Or you can combine both courses together.

This course is an introduction to the Cash-in-Transit industry, incorporating a combination of theory based and practical activities, role plays and self-paced learning.
