Certificate III in Security Operations
This course prepares clients to work in a variety of industries and sectors in a range of security contexts. The aim of this course is to develop the knowledge and skills required by workers to work in the security industry as a supervisor.
This course is delivered over 28 weeks. Face to face classes are offered two evenings a week of 4 hours each or 8 hours in one day at the weekend.
A blended delivery mode is employed including independent study and face-to-face training that will take place at ThinkPoint training facility. Some units of competency have common content so we therefore adopt a ‘clustered’ approach to assessment where units are delivered in conjunction with others. Some units of competency are stand-alone units and are delivered independently of others.
The following delivery methods are employed during face to face training depending on the subject matter: trainer presentations and demonstrations, tasks, case studies, research, role plays, practical demonstrations and group work.
Simulated workplace environments will be incorporated into delivery methodologies. Depending on the unit content and context the classroom environment is adapted to recreate security environments. Clients learn and practice how to complete activities associated with the unarmed security officer’s role and complete tasks to appropriate workplace standards.
During Independent study clients, will read course texts, undertake their own research, undertake homework activities and practice applying knowledge and skills developed in appropriate contexts. Clients will also be provided support via telephone and e-mail by our trainers.
