What would be my qualification pathway?
There are several career pathways available to people entering, or already working in, the Security Sector of the property services industry. Each pathway requires specialist training and qualifications which are also linked to licensing requirements. The students successfully completing Class 1BF Security licensing course will achieve attainment in units of competency from CPP007 Property Training package, these units are also used in other qualifications; candidates seeking to complete those courses can achieve recognition/exemptions in units which they have achieved already.

If a student withdraws from or leaves a course before completion of the suggested learning hours, they are not permitted to undertake assessment tasks of the course. They must re-join a future course to complete the missed learning hours and assessment tasks before being permitted to undertake the final assessment.
For students, this means that absences from the course will require missing time to be made up at a future course thereby delaying issuance of qualification or statement of attainment and procurement of a security license.
