National Security Training Academy Pty Ltd (NSTA) was founded in the early 1970s and was originally a security company offering mobile patrols, central station alarm monitoring, security guards and bodyguards.

NSTA boasts a proud history and holds membership of the Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL). In 1988, the security training business was established. At that time, the vocational education and training industry was not regulated.

NSTA achieved accreditation for quality assurance in 1996 which ensures a quality service to all our stakeholders.
