You will need this licence to act as a security consultant. Security Consultant licences are available in four different classes for different types of work.
You will need a class one, two or three licence to enter into contracts to supply items of security equipment. Each licence class authorises you for different types of items and equipment as follows:
- Class 1: Safes, vaults and locks
- Class 2: Security alarms, CCTV for security purposes, electric fences, bulletproof doors or screens and associated equipment
- Class 3: Security doors
- Class 4: Watching, guarding and protection of property.
You may hold more than one class of licence at the same time.
You may only work as a licensed security consultant if you are employed by a licensed security agent, unless you are a sole-trader, in which case you will also require a Security Agent Licence. You must apply for the agent's licence separately.
You may be able to apply for a temporary licence of up to one year if you are an interstate visitor and hold an equivalent licence in your home state or territory.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
