In September, the IFPO was at ASIS17, where Executive Director Sandi Davies and representatives of Purdue University Global made a major announcement, forming a cutting-edge partnership that advances education among the world's protection officers.
"This is an absolute, huge, industry-changing event, because it will not only add college credit, meaning regional accredited credits, to all IFPO certifications, but it will also give IFPO certificates and members a discount to a legitimate college degree." Please note, Purdue Discounts will not be available until early November.
