    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 investigations.
  3. "Case Management" is the coordination and direction of an investigation utilising various disciplines and resources, the findings of which would be assessed to establish the facts/findings of the investigations a whole; the management process of the investigation.

The applicant must not have been convicted of any criminal offence that would reflect negatively on the security profession, ASIS, and the PCI™ programme. Successful Completion of an examination is required for all applicants who meet the experience and/or education and responsible charge criteria.
