Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1.

Supersedes and is non-equivalent to CPPSEC2013A Protect valuables in transit.

Significant changes made to the unit to reflect current industry needs.

This version first released with CPP Property Services Training Package Version 7.0.

Performance Evidence

To demonstrate competency in this unit, a person must escort and protect persons and valuables involving two different scenarios:

  • one person requiring security escort
  • one person carrying valuables.

In doing this, the person must meet the performance criteria for this unit.

Knowledge Evidence

To be competent in this unit, a person must demonstrate knowledge of:

  • standard operating procedures and workplace policies that ensure compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements when escorting and protecting persons and valuables:
  • counter terrorism
  • duty of care
  • licensing requirements and limits of own authority
  • workplace health and safety (WHS)
  • approved communication terminology, call signs and radio channels used in the security industry
  • basic contingency planning
  • basic defensive techniques
  • basic escort techniques
  • basic understanding of the force model and what constitutes reasonable force
  • operational functions of communications equipment
  • options for security response within the limits of own competence and authority
  • process of dynamic risk assessment and how it is applied
  • types of threats that may exist and situations requiring assistance when:
  • escorting persons to safety
  • escorting persons carrying valuables.

Assessment Conditions

Assessors must satisfy the requirements for assessors contained in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations(RTOs). All individuals engaged by a licensed RTO for security licensing purposes must hold both a security trainer’s licence (where such a licence exists within the relevant jurisdiction) and a security operative licence that authorises the security activities about which the individual is training/assessing. Regulators may impose other assessor conditions to meet jurisdictional assessment requirements.

Assessment of performance must be undertaken in a simulated workplace environment. Tasks are to be performed to the level of proficiency and within the time limits that would be expected in a workplace.

The assessment of performance evidence must be done by direct observation of the learner by an assessor, either by an assessor observing the learner physically or by an assessor observing the learner via audio and visual media.

Assessment of performance evidence is only valid where the learner has been assessed performing the role of a security officer.

Assessors are responsible for ensuring that the person demonstrating competency has access to:

  • specifications of assessment tasks to escort and protect persons and valuables
  • appropriate documents, materials, equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE) currently used in industry
  • standard operating procedures and workplace policies related to the security work role and which specify requirements for complying with legal rights and responsibilities.
