Certified Protection Officer

Under the aegis of International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO), the Certified Protection Officer (CPO) program is designed for protection and security officers who are intent on improving their individual security skills.

The security profession operates in a constantly changing environment and must provide a wide range of potential responses to evolving and increasingly complex threats. Globalization and technology increase the scope of these threats and accelerate the rate at which they change. Consequently, providing security has become more complicated and the knowledge required by a competent security operative, at any level, has grown. This course improves any protection officer’s skills, knowledge, and abilities.
