  • IFPO's CPO vs. ASIS's CPP

    Which would you rather take? IFPO's CPO or ASIS's CPP course?

    I'm sure some will say take both, so for those let me ask, which would you take first?

    And for everyone, why?

    Edit: Poll should read: Which would you study and take?

    Like many things in life, it all depends on where you are now and want to go.
    CPO was great for just after entry level to help me raise my standards too progress, CPP now shows dedication and commitment. I am the same guy as without the letters after my name, but perception by others looking can be different.

      That's actually incorrect. You do not need a BA if you have 9 years of work experience.

      "Applicants must meet one of the following requirements to be accepted as a CPP™ candidate:

      Education: An earned bachelor's degree or higher from an accredited institution of higher education and work Experience: Seven (7) years of security experience, including at least three (3) years in responsible charge of a security function

      OR

      Work Experience: Nine (9) years of security experience, including at least three (3) years in responsible charge of a security function.

      Eligibility requirements also include no prior conviction of any criminal offense that would reflect negatively on the security profession or on ASIS International and its certification programs."


      I do agree with you though that CPO and CPP are completely different. I view it this way... the CPO is more of an entry-level certification, whereas the CPP is your professional certification. I have seen job openings in the past where you were required to have a bachelors degree OR a CPP.
