Career Information Sessions

Join us for a career info session to learn about the great opportunities in the security sector.

We’ll cover:

  • Variety of roles available

This is something that not everyone realises is that security is more than just working in a pub! The role types are endless, working for private companies as well as government.

  • Earning opportunities

Security Guards are paid in a number of different ways. Some of the work that you will do might be shift work so it will be important to understand the different penalty rates you might be entitled too, as well as how the industry generally pays their staff.

  • Employment outcomes

We offer employment support for our graduates to help you get your first (and many other) roles after completing your course with us.

  • Career pathways within the industry

You don’t have to stop at becoming an unarmed Security Officer. There are a number of pathways you can take including armed, aviation, management, investigations and so many more!
