Linx International Group confirmed as UK’s first global ASIS International Preferred CPE Provider

Linx International Group, the provider of security, risk management, consultancy and training services, has been awarded ASIS Preferred CPE Provider status. The Preferred Provider Programme affords chosen organisations the opportunity to award re-certification Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits for their security or business management-related continuing education offerings. ASIS-approved activities can be easily identified by the Preferred CPE Provider Programme logo by those searching for continuing education toward their re-certification.

“ASIS is committed to helping certified individuals find quality security education that will not only count towards their re-certification, but more importantly help them to grow as security practitioners,” explained Nancy Green, chief global learning and strategy officer at ASIS International. “The fact that the Linx International Group has stepped up as our very first provider from the UK demonstrates its commitment to the profession as well.” 

David Gill MSc CSyP FSyI, Group managing director at the Linx International Group, responded: “We’re honoured to be the UK’s first Global ASIS Education Partner and build on the Linx International Group’s rich heritage with ASIS International. Our team takes an active role in its Chapters and initiatives including participating at GSX. We’re especially proud of the success of our students studying for their CPP and PSP qualifications.”
