The Private Security Personnel Licensing Authority (PSPLA) has now advised that applicants in the Security Consultant category are required to prove “competence”. Proof of competence was NOT required when Licenses and Certificates of Approval were first issued in 2011, that has now changed.
The PSPLA says that evidence of this competency can be one of the following:
- a letter from your employer showing your work history. This can be your past or present employer
- a letter from your employer showing that you are an apprentice
- New Zealand National Diploma in Security (Level 6)
- ASIS certifications Certified Protection Professional (CPP) and Physical Security Professional (PSP)
- New Zealand Security Association Consultant Certificate of Competence
- Evidence of any other relevant qualifications
The NZSA Security Consultant Certificate of Competence, is designed to provide an introduction to the role of Security Consultants and enable graduates to apply for a Certificate of Approval in that category.
- This course is designed as a self paced distance learning programme. All contact with the Independent Certificate Manager will be via email. One to one mentoring, in person or via telephone, can be made available at a cost of $150 plus gst per hour of part thereof.
- To maintain the integrity of the Certificate it will only be awarded to those who are able to demonstrate their competence through a series of assessment tasks. NZSA will provide all reasonable assistance to learners through written feedback on assessments; but if a learner, who has been given the opportunity to resit the assessments, in the opinion of the Independent Certificate Manager, is unable to meet the required standards their enrolment in the programme will be terminated and no refund applies. Leaners affected by this may appeal that decision to the CEO of the New Zealand Security Association
The Security Consultant course comprises of 3 modules and 5 assessment tasks.
Module One – Security Risk
Assessments (2): Security Survey and Risk Assessment
Module Two – Security Operational Requirements
Assessments (2): Level 1 operational Requirement and Level 2 Operational Requirements
Module Three: Standards and Legislation
