PerpetuityARC Training launches ASIS APP course for UK security professionals

PerpetuityARC Training (part of the Linx International Group) has announced that it’s the first and only organisation in the UK to offer training for the highly respected ASIS International Associate Protection Professional (APP) certification.

The APP examination assesses the knowledge of security management fundamentals, among them business operations, risk management and response management. This Board certification is an internationally-recognised security management accreditation and ideal for those security management professionals with one-to-four years of experience. Upon passing the examination, the post-nominals ‘APP’ may be used.

Sarah Hayward-Turton APP is the sales and marketing director at the Linx International Group and attained the APP qualification last year. Hayward-Turton observed: “PerpetuityARC Training is committed to supporting security management professionals at every stage of their career. The APP is an important first rung on the ladder, offering an internationally-recognised Board certification. Having been through the process myself, I would advise others that the right preparation is key.”

In October last year, the Linx International Group was confirmed as the UK’s first global ASIS International Preferred CPE Provider. It’s now the only training provider in the UK that can guide security management professionals from the APP all the way through to the ASIS International Physical Security Professional (PSP) and Certified Protection Professional (CPP).

For security professionals wanting the best possible preparation for the APP examination, PerpetuityARC Training is now offering its courses online as well as in a five-day classroom-based ‘boot camp’ format.

Security professionals taking the APP course will have the opportunity to review and discuss relevant materials, complete practice examination papers and receive vital one-to-one tutor support thanks to input from an experienced subject matter expert.

PerpetuityARC Training’s online learning platform also provides access to learning materials within the key domains of security fundamentals, business operations, risk management and response management.

Hayward-Turton concluded: “As an ASIS CPE Training Provider and the first and only organisation to offer the APP preparation course, we’re working extremely hard to help security professionals continue their professional education through many routes of learning.”
