  • Security – Batons and Handcuffs

    CPPSS00059 Batons and Handcuffs Skill Set

    Have no previous experience?
    Start with the CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations.

    It is a very commonly asked question – when can a security officer carry/use batons and handcuffs? The answer – when they have been trained, have authority from their employer and when they have a genuine reason (eg. patrols, working alone, night shifts, etc). They are NOT to be carried for crowd control, private investigations, debt collections or when off duty.

    This skill set describes the skills and knowledge required to safely and effectively carry and use batons and handcuffs. This skill set may provide credit towards CPP31318 Certificate III in Security Operations and CPP31418 Certificate III in Close Protection Operations.

    Our instructors are industry professionals with extensive experience in the use of defensive weapons.

    Students will usually complete this skill set as part of our Firearms and Defensive Tactics course.

    Statement of Attainment will be awarded upon successful completion of this course. This will be advantageous for job roles which require the carry and use of Batons and Handcuffs.
