Qld security industry to undergo training

AAP logoAAP 9/08/2016 By David Sigston

The Palaszczuk Government has announced a review into the training of the security industry.

Queensland's Training Ombudsman will undertake the review, amid revelations the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) had cancelled the accreditation of Queensland-based Peacemakers Security Pty Ltd.

"I want to ensure that we have a properly trained security industry in Queensland, to ensure the safety of people and property across the state," Queensland's Attorney-General Yvette D'Ath said.

As a result of Peacemakers being stripped of the right to train security staff, the Office of Fair Trading was working with ASQA to locate participants who completed training under the banned business.

"This is why we have established the office of the Queensland Training Ombudsman and will continue to work closely with ASQA to support any Queenslanders impacted by the actions of any organisations not upholding these standards," Ms D'Ath said.
