If you held the former Class 1A (Unarmed Guard) subclass on 31 May 2023 and carried on unarmed cash-in-transit (CIT) activities under the authority of that licence, you can continue to do so until 1 December 2023 while holding the new Class 1A (Security Officer) subclass.

To continue carrying on unarmed CIT activities after that date you must:

  • successfully complete the NSW Class 1C Cash-in-Transit Guard Licence Course or obtain the CIT related units of competency from the current NSW Class 1F Armed Guard Licence Course, and
  • lodge with SLED no later than 1 December 2023 a P1230 Class 1C (Cash-in-Transit Guard) Transition Application form with a copy of your statement of attainment or certificate showing you have satisfied the Class 1C training requirements outlined above.

The Class 1C subclass will be added to your licence for free if you satisfy these requirements and a new portrait style security licence card issued. Late applications will not be accepted.

The P1230 Class 1C (Cash-in-Transit Guard) Transition Application form is available here.

Details of organisations approved to deliver the NSW Class 1C (Cash-in-Transit Guard) Licence Course is available here.

Other licensees who want to add the new 1C subclass to their security licence must complete the required training and lodge a P645 Amend, Vary or Replace an Existing Class 1 and/or Class 2 Licence application form available here. An $80 licence variation application fee is payable.
