    That hasn't been my experience with them. I wouldn't say they have "Amazon.com" delivery speed, but don't think it took more than a couple of weeks to get their stuff.

      While it's been awhile since I've dealt with them, I had nothing but good to great experiences with them.

        The IFPO, if I remember correctly, is run by a snowbird (A Canadian National who drives/flies down to Florida every winter cause its warm there.)

        In other words, its run by a single woman, not a huge massive corporation.

            What is IFPO?

            Hey UtahProtectionForce, what's up?

            I have to ask, what is the IFPO, and how does it relate to security? I have heard of many of the things where only the initials for the words are used (sorry, I know the proper terminology for this, but for the life of me cannot remember it ), like the FBI, CIA, USMC, ect, but I don't recognize some of them used on this site like the IFPO, CPP, POOP, whoops, forget about that last one, with having had three little ones, I know that one all to well.

            I have seen so many of the initials used on these posts, and without my feeble old mind understanding most of them, I wish we had a thread to go to so they could be looked up.

            Oh well, have a great day.

                Perhaps it is mailed out after your cheque / Visa etc. has cleared.

                        What courses are you looking at completing ?

                        I looked again today - ashame nothing is certified for Australia ............ just more generic studies but useful no doubt.

                          The IFPO certs aren't officially recognized by any government or licensing agency, including the U.S., are they? In other words, IFPO certs are probably about as meaningful for someone in Australia as they would be for someone in the US.

                            Agreed but again anything that can help make your job easier or promote a better work culture is going to help. We have basically bugger all in the line of training for our industry here apart from workplace safety (done them all), some risk management stuff (well can't do anymore) and security training (apart from doing alarms and dog handling certs) which have been completed.

                            I don't think the costs are over the top and if it means greater knowledge then that is the whole design of the course too. Does it come with a free set of steak knives ?

                              I recieved my certification in approximately 3 weeks after test taking. I'm not sure what the hold up is.
