Looking to advance your career in security?

Have you considered a senior security qualification?

New Zealand Certificate in Security (Advanced) Level 4

(Coming soon – start date August 2020)

The NZCIS 4 qualification is designed to promote and support leadership skills and knowledge development, adding well-trained supervisors, managers, team leaders and senior security guards to your organisation.

The NZCIS 4 supports those in managerial, supervisory or team leader roles while preparing senior security staff who wish to progress within their organisation. It provides an opportunity to develop the fundamentals required in senior roles and covers the topics essential to security leadership.  As this is a work-based programme, participants are able to integrate learning from the real world of security employment. Learners may enter the NZCIS 4 directly without the NZCIS 3, but we advise that you have other security qualifications or a strong background in security. C4 will not enrol any learner that does not have the support of their employer to be able to work at a senior level.
