Short Training Course

Multisec Training was the first provider in NSW to offer a Security Licence Enforcement Directorate approved Security Licence Course that went for two weeks.

All other providers at that time were only offering a three-week course. A number of providers have now followed suit, seeing the benefit to industry and to the students in a shorter, more targeted and relevant security licence course.

As previously stated, the length of Multisec Training’s security course is ten days face to face learning, as well as a number of days pre-learning.
