Becoming a security guard is a fantastic career for people of all ages, with a large variety of jobs they can choose from.

They can do mobile or static patrols, or crowd control in hotels and large venues such as music festivals. 

Security guard’s work is highly respected and important as they work with the police and with the client to reduce the risk of crime. 

Although it is for all ages, security guards still need to be physically fit. This isn’t to say that security guards need to be Olympic athletes, but they do need to be able to walk and stand for extended periods of time and they need to possess good upper body strength. The reason for this is at times they need to be able to carry people who are injured or in harm’s way and can’t move themselves, or you may need to restrain a person who is intending to harm you or members of the public.

Being a security guard means that you will have plenty of diversity and opportunities. Provided you possess the correct security guard licence and have done the correct training, you could get a job escorting valuables or cash, or you could get a job working with a security guard dog, or protecting a VIP, these duties will require a different licence classification.

Security Guards can be armed or unarmed depending upon their classification of security licence for NSW.

Class 1 security activities include:

  • 1A Unarmed Guard
  • 1B Bodyguard
  • 1C Crowd Controller
  • 1D Guard Dog Handler
  • 1E Monitoring Centre Operator
  • 1F Armed Guard.

Certain classifications require a different type of certification.

Being a security guard is also a great social outlet, as you meet people from all walks of life and you also work with people from all over the world who have come to Australia and NSW to start a new life.
