Start climbing the ladder to success in the security industry with the International Foundation for Protection Officers' CPO program, widely recognized as one of the top certifications in the field. Not only does the program give students a solid foundation of knowledge, but successful completion instills a confidence in them that will remain throughout their careers. In addition, a CPO certification truly does "look good on a resume," setting the student apart from others when applying for jobs.
The Certified Protection Officer (CPO) program is designed for protection and security officers that are intent on improving their individual security skills. Students may take the exam first and receive a certificate of completion, applying for certification when they have obtained the necessary experience. Students participating in a security related classroom program at an educational institute may take the CPO Program if they are not 18, however they will receive a certificate of completion. When they become 18, they can contact the IFPO to receive their CPO certification certificate. Available online, correspondence course, or as a Final Challenge.
