“I just completed my Certificate II and III in Security Operations at North Lakes. I was immediately impressed the moment I picked up the phone to call the North Lakes office to enquire. Within 10 minutes I was enrolled into the next Certificate II class. I felt exhilarated that my new career was suddenly underway at such short notice. I couldn’t wait to start that Monday.

The trainers were very experienced security professionals, that blended the curriculum with real life security examples and the right amount of humour to enhance the learning experience.

I was so impressed with the Certificate II class I went on to do my Cert III and my Firearms & Defensive Tactics course as well. During the course they assist you in the application process for getting your security licence and and I can’t wait to start work in the industry.

Thanks to James, Craig, Glenn, Peta, Brooke and the rest of the Asset College team for a fantastic experience and to the new friends I met on the way!”
