Certificate III in Security Operations (Cash in transit, Bodyguard, Monitoring)

CPP30411 - Release 4

About this Course

After you’ve completed your Certificate 2 in Security Operations, the next step is the Certificate 3 in Security Operations from the Brisbane or Southport campuses. This course provides you with the ability to perform more specialised security functions, such as Bodyguard and Cash in Transit. This course will also prepare you for middle management, supervisory and monitoring positions in the industry, and is a requirement for all airport security.

Please be aware that not all training companies offer the same course units in the Cert III course. When conducting your research into the program, check that the units required to add specific functions to your licence are included in the course, or you may be required to do additional training.

This 8-day blended delivery course does not include all of the units that you need to have in order to get your QLD security licence – you must have already completed the Cert II or hold your security licence, in order to apply for your CIT (Cash in Transit), or Bodyguard licence, using the certificate from this particular course.  If you are not interested in having the extra CIT or Bodyguard functions on your licence, then you will be better off completing our 10-day blended Cert III Licensing course (a higher level of learning than the Cert II, including the management and supervisory units, and covers just the Unarmed and Crowd Control units), or the 6-day blended Cert II course – as either of these courses enables you to apply for your Unarmed & Crowd Control licence.  Please check out the relevant pages on our website for these courses.

We also offer a free face to face Q&A Session to all enrolled Security students twice a month at Southport, to assist with any questions students may have when completing home studies.


Note for international students – we are not CRICOS registered, please check your visa requirements for enrolment.  We cannot accept international students who are on a student visa.

  • Adding additional functions to your license

    For any security guards who have already obtained their QLD licence and only need to complete the modules to add specific functions to their licence, we also offer 1-2 day courses in the areas of Bodyguarding, Monitoring, Cash In Transit, and Handcuffs & Batons. Cost is as low as $150 per function.

What You Will Learn

Throughout this course, you will gain the knowledge and practical skills to work effectively as a QLD security officer in areas including:

  • Shopping centres,
  • Control rooms,
  • Monitoring centres,
  • Cash in transit,
