Hospital Security Course in Perth

Course Overview

The Hospital Security course is for those seeking employment working in a healthcare or hospital environment. A Certificate II in Security Operations does not prepare you for employment within this environment.

Too often our Healthcare clients discuss the issues with untrained staff being sent to site, only to not know what is expected of them or how to respond to healthcare and mental health emergency situations.

Healthcare workers are more likely to be subjected to workplace violence than any other industry and having well trained and prepared security officers is vital to ensure worker and patient safety.

This course is an introductory program into healthcare security and safety, and defines security’s role within a healthcare organisation and managing high risk situations. This course has been developed to meet the needs of our healthcare clients and will provide a good base of skills and knowledge to commence work within the healthcare or hospital environment.
