A provisional crowd controller licence or security officer licence is available for people the Director-General of Licensing considers are appropriate to work in the industry but have yet to complete the necessary training.
A provisional licence is usually granted to those who have enrolled or commenced a training course but are yet to complete it. However, special consideration may be given to people in remote localities or regional centres where training is not run regularly.
Before your provisional licence is approved you must complete a fingerprint check with the NT Police, using the approved forms.
Where a provisional licence is issued, the person is required to complete the necessary training within three months of the commencement of their provisional licence issue date. A provisional licence is only valid for three months and it will only be extended or re-issued to the same person once. The person must complete required training to attain a full licence.
A person holding a provisional licence will also need to be supervised by a qualified person when on duty.
On presentation of evidence that the required training has been successfully completed before the provisional licence expires, a full licence will be issued for the reminder of the year without further cost or application being lodged.
