Project: Security and Risk Management

Stage 2

On behalf of the Property Services IRC, Artibus Innovation is reviewing and updating the following training package components:

  • 3 qualifications:
    • CPP4XX19 Certificate IV in Security Management
    • CPP4XX19 Certificate IV in Security Risk
    • CPP5XX19 Diploma of Security Risk Management
  • 31 units of competency.

Security and risk management plays a crucial role in event, public and crowded places risk management.

The security and risk management qualifications (Certificate IV and Diploma) lead to the occupation of Security Consultant or Security Advisor (ANZSCO identifier 442216). Security consultants typically advise ‘clients on security requirements and recommends and designs security specifications.’ This means that they assess the potential security risks for buildings or events and provide security protocols and plans to mitigate those risks.

Security consultants have been identified in the Australian Government’s 2017 document Australia’s Strategy for Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism as an essential part of the strategy. As part of step three of the strategy, implementing effective protective security, it is stated that owners and operators have a responsibility to undertake a risk assessment and/or vulnerability analysis of their crowded place and implement the appropriate mitigations.’ The strategy advisors that owners and operators of crowded places seek advice from professional and qualified security consultants in order to undertake a complete security risk assessment and to receive the appropriate recommendations.

The Technical Advisory Group held its first meeting in late August 2018.
