To pass the CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations course you must attend our training rooms to apply in person. At the time you apply you will sit an English and Numeracy assessment, which is a basic assessment of your English and Numeracy skills.

Once you pass that assessment, you will be asked to pay for the course and then you will be enrolled in our online learning course.

We ask that you finish the online course prior to you starting the course. The reason you do an English and Numeracy assessment prior to starting your security guard course is because you require good English skills to be a security guard.

You will then attend the CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations course at our Multisec Training office located in Auburn, you will be assessed on all the skills you need to be a security guard. Once you pass the course you can apply to become a security guard.
