ACCESS Canberra, which is responsible for security industry licensing in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) under the Security Industry Act 2003, has announced that requirements for technical security employee licence applicants have changed.

From 31 August 2017 applicants for the following security employee licence sub-classes will no longer need to have training qualifications in order to apply for a licence in those sub-classes:

* Selling security equipment (2B);
* Carrying out surveys and inspections of security equipment (2C);
* Giving advice about security equipment (2D); and
* Installing, maintaining, monitoring, repairing or servicing security equipment (2E).

This change brings the ACT in line with most other jurisdictions regarding the 'requirements' for these sub-classes. ♦
