Even the most well-considered and tested security plan is unlikely to completely remove risk, particularly when it comes to large organisations and public places. However, having protective security measures in place developed by a qualified risk analyst or security consultant should significantly minimise the extent of damage to the public, the venue, and the organisation at the centre of any such attack. Australia’s Strategy for Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism is available on the National Security government website and outlines strategies all Australian businesses are required to undertake in conjunction with security risk professionals to ensure the protection of their assets and public events. As a result, the security industry has seen significant increase in demand for qualified graduates in risk analysis and mitigation strategies.
According to the Australian Government “My Skills” website and training register, 88% of graduates from this course are currently employed or undertaking further study in the field. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be awarded Certificate IV in Security Risk Analysis (CPP41519). This course provides the necessary skills for occupational specialization in electronic security for crowded places and a pathway to further learning and work in security risk management.
