New 1C (Cash-in-Transit Guard) subclass

A new 1C (Cash-in-Transit Guard) security licence subclass will commence on 1 June 2023 and authorise holders to patrol, protect or guard cash-in-transit (CIT).
If you have been carrying on CIT activities under the authority of the 1A (Unarmed Guard) subclass, you may continue to carry on the activities while holding the 1A (Security Officer) subclass until 1 December 2023. To carry on CIT activities after this date, you must:


1. complete a NSW Security Licence Course that incorporates the mandatory CIT-specific units of competency; and
2. apply for the new 1C (Cash-in-Transit Guard) subclass by 1 December 2023 and include evidence of completing the mandatory CIT-specific training.

You will not have to pay the licence application fee if you complete these steps by 1 December 2023 and will receive a new photo licence showing the 1C (Cash-in-Transit Guard) subclass.
To carry on armed CIT activities from 1 June 2023 you must hold the 1C (Cash-in-Transit Guard) and the 1F (Armed Guard) subclasses.
If you hold a current 1F (Armed Guard) subclass, your licence record will be amended on 1 June to show you have been automatically granted the 1C (Cash-in-Transit Guard) subclass. This is due to you having already completed CIT-specific training. You will retain the 1F subclass.
These subclass changes will be reflected immediately on SLED’s Public Register.
After the 1st December 2023 you will not be able to conduct unarmed cash in transit without this upgrade.
