Every three years, as a licensed bodyguard or licensed crowd controller, you will need to successfully complete three units of competency through a nationally recognised training provider. This is known as revalidation training. Revalidation training ensures that you remain up to date with the latest industry standards and techniques.
The units of competency required to be completed every three years are:
You must seek re-training and be re-assessed in each of these units of competency by the due date. You will be advised of the required completion dates for these competencies on the notice supplied with your security licence.
These units are specifically prescribed as revalidation training, and as such, completing these courses via recognition of prior learning is not acceptable. This means that you must complete the course and not just seek RPL.
The Statement of Attainment provided to you by your training organisation does not include the actual result and the method through which the competency was achieved. Therefore, to ensure that this initiative of revalidation training is properly administered, Fair Trading also require a copy of the Record of Results. When you lodge evidence of completion of the required revalidation training unit, please remember to include both the Statement of Attainment and Record of Results.
The first aid unit must be current at the time the unit is due for completion. If the first aid unit has been completed more than 12 months ago, it will also be necessary to provide evidence of completion of the CPR component, HLTCPR201A or HLTCPR201B - Perform CPR, within the last 12 months.
It is the responsibility of the licensee to ensure that this CPR component remains current and up to date at all times.
Licensees who fail to lodge evidence of completion of the required units of competency prior to the completion date will be subject to disciplinary action which may result in the cancellation of the bodyguard or crowd controller function from their licence.
