Security Providers Licence

Security Providers licence applications are administered by the Queensland Government Office of Fair Trading. The process for preparing and submitting the licence application will be covered on the course. Refer to the Office of Fair Trading website for further information and current licence application fees.

The Security Providers Act 1993 requires individuals who hold the Bodyguard licence function to undertake refresher training every three years. All security providers are required to maintain a current First Aid certificate.


“I finished my training with you last Friday and just wanted to thank you all for the professionalism and friendly nature of all your team. I was a bit concerned and nervous at first, having to do the training, but all your staff were very helpful and it turned out to be quite good fun. Thank you all for all your help.”
