AUSTRALIAN Security Industry Association Ltd (ASIAL) and Comtech Training are delivering the Security Technician Certification (STC) training programme nationally and Comtech is now taking new enrolments for the STC program.
The STC program credential is a technical certification program that covers cabling practices, alarms, CCTV, access control, IP networking and cybersecurity. Starting with the Certified Security Technician level, participants must successfully complete each certification level before progressing to the next, with course delivery online. Once you have successfully enrolled and paid you will be given immediate access to the course material.
Designed to provide a career pathway for security technicians, the Security Technician Certification programme is also a proactive initiative to attract and retain appropriately skilled workers capable of meeting the future needs of the industry. Starting with the ‘Certified Security Technician’ level, participants must successfully complete each certification level before progressing to the next.
“Training is a key element in future proofing your business, technology developments such as the roll out of the National Broadband Network and the move to IP- based solutions are driving changes to the skill sets required by technicians,” said ASIAL’s John Fleming.
“To harness opportunities in the digital world, technicians need to be competent in understanding not only the relevant key products groups of alarms, access control and CCTV they also need IP networking and cyber security skills. ASIAL has partnered with Comtech Training to develop the Security Technician Programme as a career pathway for technicians and we’re excited by the possibilities.”
The Security Technician Certification program is a national recognition program initiated by ASIAL to recognise technicians who have the relevant industry experience and training, which will become the benchmark for electronic security training in Australia.
Attracting appropriately skilled workers has always been a priority for electronic security providers. However, growing competition for workers from other industry sectors means that it is increasingly important that employers have in place strategies to attract and retain the right people. Added to this, technological developments such as the roll out of the National Broadband Network and the emergence of IP-based solutions are driving changes to the skill sets required by security technicians.
