Risk management is a growing and exciting industry, from analysing and recommending counter-terrorism and other risk-mitigation strategies to technical and data protections.
In Australia, our national terrorism threat level is at “probable”, particularly in public locations where large crowds gather such as sporting, community and religious venues. Local and State Governments and owners/operators of venues have a duty of care and corporate responsibility to undertake a formal risk assessment of their site(s), activities and/or events, and implement and regularly test protective security measures. To do so, many employ or engage qualified private security risk assessment consultants.
The Certificate IV in Security Risk Analysis course offers a new qualification to meet industry requirements for qualified security risk advisers who can apply technical security and operations expertise in a risk management environment. This course is being offered for the first time nationally in 2020 and requires 475 hours of online study which most graduates complete in under 8 months part-time, or even less when combining with RPL.
The Australian Security Academy (ASA) delivers the latest in specialist online learning programs for the security and surveillance industry, backed by two decades of experience, quality content, career support and advice.
