ACT Licensing Changes – Technical Security

Requirements for technical security employee licence applicants have changed.

From 31 August 2017 applicants for the following security employee licence sub-classes will no longer need to have training qualifications in order to apply for a licence in those sub-classes:

  • selling security equipment (2B);
  • carrying out surveys and inspections of security equipment (2C);
  • giving advice about security equipment (2D); and
  • installing, maintaining, monitoring, repairing or servicing security equipment (2E).

This change brings the ACT in line with most other jurisdictions regarding the requirements for these sub-classes.
