Security Industry Overview

Join an industry of security experts, learn covert operations, become a bodyguard or an aviation security guard. Whatever path you choose in security, you’ll be well prepared when you train with ASSET.

Being a security guard is a challenging yet rewarding profession. Security guards are responsible for maintaining a safe and secure environment for people and property, and this requires vigilance and attention to detail.  

As a security guard, you must be prepared to handle a range of situations, including responding to emergencies, dealing with disruptive behaviour, and deterring criminal activity. It is a career that demands discipline, professionalism, and a strong sense of responsibility, but at the end of the day you know you are making a difference in ensuring the safety of others. 

The Australian security industry is highly regulated, with strict licensing requirements and standards in place to ensure the safety of both clients and workers. At ASSET we focus on providing quality training with industry leaders. Each course is designed to meet licensing requirements in that state or territory.  

The security industry is growing rapidly, with new roles coming up all the time. In security there is something for everyone. Explore the roles available to you through our specialised, industry-standard training programs including security guard, crowd controller, aviation security officer, cash-in-transit, bodyguard, armed security and private investigator.
