Three types of professional security certifications... Why get certified?
Professional (CPP) - This certification designates
individuals who have demonstrated competency in all areas
constituting security management.
For individuals with extensive
experience in security management.
The credential most often held by
top-level security executives.
The average CPP earns 16% more
than his or her non-certified security management
Investigator (PCI) - Holders of the PCI certification
have demonstrated education and/or experience in the fields of
case management, evidence collection, and case presentation.
For those with expertise in case management,
evidence collection, and case presentation.
A variety of businesses—from multinational
manufacturers to the third-largest U.S. drugstore
chain—have adopted the PCI as part of their
development programs for loss prevention managers.
Professional (PSP) Physical Security
Professional (PSP) - The PSP designation is the
certification for those whose primary responsibility is to
conduct threat surveys, design integrated security systems that
include equipment, procedures and people, or install, operate
and maintain those systems.
For individuals with expertise in conducting threat
surveys; designing integrated security systems; or
installing, operating, and maintaining such systems.
Facility managers, systems providers, defense
contractors, and many others have found the PSP
right for them.
