Certified Protection Officer

September 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - November 30, 2019 @ 1:00 pm


Are You Ready?

The CPO program is designed for individuals who wish to learn more and enhance their competencies about the security/asset protection profession.  It is  an excellent jump-start to an exciting, rewarding  and respected career.

The security profession operates in a constantly changing environment and must provide a wide range of preventative, readiness, and responses strategies, to an evolving and increasingly complex world. Globalization and technology increase the scope of these mitigation initiatives and accelerate the rate at which they change. Consequently, providing asset protection has become more complicated and the knowledge required by a competent security operative, at any level, has grown. This course is a comprehensive introduction and at the same time will improve any protection officer’s skills, knowledge, and abilities.

The course will fully prepare candidates for the CPO Final Exam that is included in the price of the course. All course materials prior to the final exam remain available for student review at any time prior to starting the final exam. Candidates who successfully complete the CPO 8th Edition Final Exam are provided an IFPO Certification Certificate.
