Here at the International Foundation for Protection Officers, we truly believe that the courses we offer provide security officers a distinct advantage, both in personal development and in their quest to climb the ranks within the industry. But how about hearing feedback from those who have taken our courses? Here are two recent examples, the first from a security officer in Tennessee:
"I recently completed the Professional Security Officer Course online. I then submitted it to the State of Tennessee to meet my Continuing Education requirements to renew my Armed Security Trainer certificate.
They were so impressed with your program, they called me to get more information and wanted to recommend it to others that need to get continuing education for guard and trainer licenses. Apparently, they get calls about that all the time.
I think this stands as a testament to the value and quality of your programs.
In a time of uncertainty, I wanted to pass on this good bit of information. Keep up the great work."
And one from Brandon Shafikhani, PPS, CEO of Samaritan Protective Services LLC in Virginia:
"It was a wonderful course (Certified Protection Officer) and has a plethora of information and topics that I believe are very relevant to both newcomers and seasoned veterans to the security industry. I would like to begin offering this course to our tenured personnel.
Thank you again for the opportunity to take the course and personally experience the training value that it presents."
The International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO) is dedicated to providing meaningful and cost effective security training for security guards and protection officers.
We believe that education is a necessary and essential part of professional security training and the security officer’s background. IFPO serves individuals, security companies, and organizations that have their own private security staff. Our students and members benefit from the recognition and standing that the prestigious IFPO certification conveys.
