Certifications

Certified Protection Professional (CPP): Introduced in 1977, this certification designates individuals who have demonstrated competency in all areas constituting security management.

Professional Certified Investigator (PCI): Introduced in 2002, holders of the PCI certification have demonstrated education and/ or experience in the fields of case management, evidence collection, and case presentation.

Physical Security Professional (PSP): Introduced in 2002, the PSP designation is the certification for those who primary responsibility to conduct threat surveys, design integrated security systems that include equipment, procedures and people, or install, operate and maintain those systems.

Why Certify?: The simple answers is that to remain as competitive as possible today, you must be certified.  The bar has been raised in the security profession and employers, contractors, governments, and even clients are now taking additional steps to ensure that they are hiring or working with the most skilled and knowledgeable individual in the business.
