ASIAL Security Technician Certification (STC) Training Program

About the Security Technician Certification program

The Australian Security Industry Association Ltd (ASIAL) in conjunction with Comtech Training are delivering the Security Technician Certification (STC) training program nationally.
Designed to provide a career pathway for security technicians, the Security Technician Certification program is also a proactive initiative to attract and retain appropriately skilled workers capable of meeting the future needs of the industry.

What is the program?

The Security Technician Certification program is a national recognition program initiated by ASIAL to recognise technicians who have the relevant industry experience and training, this 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.

The Security Technician Certification program credential is a technical certification program that covers:

  • Cabling Practices
  • Alarms
  • CCTV
  • Access control
  • IP Networking for the security professional
  • Cyber Security

The Security Technician Certification program incorporates three levels of recognition:

  1. Certified Security Technician (CST) 
  2. Advanced Security Technician (AST)
  3. Master Security Technician (MST)

Commencing with the ‘Certified Security Technician’ level, participants can progress to ultimately attain the ‘Master Security Technician’ level.
