Are you current or former police or military?  CLET offers RPL for the CPP20218 Certificate III in Security Operations for those with experience in policing or military.

The CLET CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations meets licensing requirements in Queensland, Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.

Licensing requirements in these States and Territories are met through the 14 core units of competency that form the CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations.  It is these units of competency that will be assessed against in the RPL process.  You do not need to identify the units for your State or Territory, as CLET will do this for you.

Currently the CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations will meet licensing requirements for base level roles such as unarmed security officer, general guarding, crowd controller and/or crowd or venue control.  Some combinations of units in some locations will allow for combined licensing with other roles.  The CLET RPL Team will advise you of this, specific to your State or Territory, after the assessment is complete.

Apply for RPL now and get the process underway.
