ARC Training has just announced that the company is now offering four different ways in which students can prepare to attain ASIS International’s prestigious Certified Protection Professional (CPP) and/or Physical Security Professional (PSP) accreditations.
“As an ASIS International Education Partner, we appreciate there are many security professionals who wish to acquire the ASIS CPP or PSP accreditations, but we also realise they need to do so within the context of their busy working lives,” explained Sarah Hayward, sales manager at ARC Training. “This is why we’ve introduced a choice of learning options to enable students to take on board essential security industry knowledge at a pace that best suits them.”
The ASIS CPP accreditation is one of the most widely-recognised security management qualifications in the world, providing employers with proof of the holder’s enhanced knowledge of security management.
The ASIS PSP accreditation provides proof of the holder’s knowledge and experience in threat assessment and risk analysis, integrated physical security systems and the appropriate identification, implementation and ongoing evaluation of security measures.
The examinations for both accreditations can be difficult to pass without guidance and, with this in mind, ARC Training has expanded the ways in which it can assist students in preparing for the tests. These include:
*Blended Learning: This comprises a four-month distance learning programme followed by a five-day intensive classroom-based course
*Distance Learning: A five-month distance learning programme during which students receive remote support from a designated and fully-qualified tutor
*’The Intensive 10′: This programme is split into three parts. The first few days are trainer-led and teach learners how to navigate their way around the ASIS reference material. This is followed by two days of guided reading and assessments. The final five days focus on testing learners in order to identify strengths and weaknesses. This is then followed by a mock examination with questions similar to those found in previous CPP or PSP tests
*’The Intensive 5′: This programme is a condensed version of the Intensive 10 course
The Distance Learning option is accessible to students from anywhere in the world. ARC Training is also offering the option of ‘in-house’ courses for those organisations wishing to provide the preparation programmes for a number of employees. The ‘in-house’ courses may be run at a time and place of the client’s choosing, in turn maximising convenience while also minimising travel and accommodation costs.
