Certified Protection Professional

The Certified Protection Professional programme has been in place since the mid-1970’s. This certification has long been recognised as the leading qualification for security professionals throughout the world. Members seeking this qualification have been drawn from within the Armed Services, Law Enforcement Agencies, and Government Agencies, private and corporate bodies. The CPP® programme is designed to test the knowledge and skills of security professionals in the following domains:

  • Security Principles and Practices
  • Business Principles and Practices
  • Investigations
  • Personnel Security
  • Physical Security
  • Information Security
  • Crisis Management

Eligibility

Applicants must meet one of the following requirements to be accepted as a CPP™ candidate:

Education: An earned bachelor's degree or higher from an accredited institution of higher education, and,

Work Experience: Seven (7) years of security experience, including at least three (3) years in responsible charge of a security function;

OR

Work Experience: Nine (9) years of security experience, including at least three (3) years in responsible charge of a security function.

Eligibility requirements also include no prior conviction of any criminal offence that would reflect negatively on the security profession or on ASIS International and its certification programmes.

Definition of Terms

  1. "Experience" means that the individual has been personally engaged in security on a full-time basis, or as his or her primary duty. Included is:
    1. Experience as a security professional in the protection of assets, in the public or private sector, criminal justice system, government intelligence, or investigative agencies.
    2. Experience with companies, associations, government, or other organisations providing services or products, including consulting firms, provided the duties and responsibilities substantively relate to the design, evaluation, and application of systems, programmes, or equipment, or development and operation of services, for protection of assets in the private or public sectors.
    3. Experience as a full-time educator on the faculty of an accredited educational institution, provided the responsibilities for courses and other duties relate primarily to knowledge areas pertinent to the management and operation of protection of assets programs in the public or private sectors.
  2. "Practitioner" includes educators and individuals who are primarily responsible for the professional application of security principles and practices in the private or public sector.
  3. "Responsible Charge" means that charge exercised by an individual in a management position who makes decisions for the successful completion of objectives without reliance upon directions from a superior as to specific methods or techniques. However, an applicant need not have held a supervisory position, as long as the positions on which the application relies have specifically included responsibility for independent decisions or actions. If responsible charge is not based on supervisory responsibilities, then security programme management responsibilities and duties must be clearly shown. Generally, this excludes such positions as patrol officer or equivalent.
  4. "Security Function" shall mean the protection of assets; those security principles and practices employed to achieve freedom from physical and intellectual loss, unauthorised use, and danger or harm, in the private or public sector.

The applicant must not have been convicted of any criminal offence that would reflect negatively on the security profession, ASIS, and the CPP® programme.

Successful Completion of Exam

An examination is required for all applicants who meet the experience and/or education and responsible charge criteria. Candidates must pass the examination to achieve the CPP® designation.
