SecurAmerica makes available to all operational management the opportunity to become “Certified Protection Professionals” or CPP through the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS International). A CPP designation represents the pinnacle of achievement in the private security field. The designation requires the candidate to meet or exceed very high standards and pre-requisites including, a certain level of years and background in the security industry, multiple references and the ability to pass an extremely grueling four-hour certification test that assesses the candidate’s knowledge of all aspects of physical, intellectual and personnel security.
More than 12,000 security professionals across the world have earned the designation of CPP. This group of individuals has demonstrated its competency in the areas of security planning, physical security systems, security solutions and best-business practices through an intensive qualification and testing program. As a result, these men and women have been awarded the coveted designation of CPP and are recognized as proven leaders in their profession.
The CPP designation and associated certification process is administered by the American Society for Industrial Security, the trade association representing the private security industry. It is a designation that carries with it respect and prestige and will always stay with the individual certified no matter their future course of employment. We are proud to financially sponsor our employees in obtaining this certification and, as a result, further developing their career potential at SecurAmerica or wherever their career leads them.
All managers who qualify for CPP designation are reimbursed all expenses associated with passing the CPP examination.
