With high demand for security services and three per cent growth expected in the security industry over the next five years, great opportunities exist for qualified personnel to build long, rewarding careers.

Affirm Training is making it easy for new entrants to transition into a security career by providing learners with enormous advantages through the JobSecured program. The program not only guarantees an interview with Australia’s premier security company ACESGroup, but provides fee free training for eligible participants undertaking Certificate II in Security Operations, whilst also covering the cost of the Security Licensing and Enforcement Directorate’s (SLED) licence application fee.

Due to the impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on many industries, recent graduate Sam found she needed to perform a career pivot. She immediately considered a career insecurity and completed the Certificate II in Security Operations.

“I needed to find a way to upskill into a different sector that was thriving,” said Sam.

“ACESGroup supported my career journey and encouraged me to get my security licence, which has opened up doors that I never would have considered possible before.”

Affirm Training graduate Sam has recently worked her first shift with ACESGroup and is excited about this next chapter in her career.

Affirm Training representatives guide participants through each step of the training and licence application process and members of the ACESGroup recruitment team assist with job applications and interviews.

The JobSecured program goes a long way to ensuring great outcomes and a smooth transition into a new career. The vast majority of students gain immediate employment with ACESGroup, initially with the EventForce team performing non-licensed work before moving into a security role upon approval of their license application.

Allan also found himself rethinking his career when COVID-19 struck. He found it reassuring to know that the Certificate II in Security Operations provided him with a direct pathway to employment.

“I am very happy with [Affirm Training]. The whole experience has been great and I appreciate the opportunity,” he said.

Allan is now working as a static guard with ACESGroup and offers the following piece of advice to anyone considering a career change:

“Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. Put yourself out there and believe in[your ability] to learn something new.”
