CPP - Certified Protection Professional


In 2008, I earned my designation as a Certified Protection Professional


This designate has been offered by ASIS International since 1977 and is the only global accreditation in the security industry – recognized in more than 30 countries. This Accreditation is also recognized under ISO/IEC 17024.

The course requires an eligibility based on experience & education; a number of text books; a course preview option (taken in Boston in 2008) and a 4 hour comprehensive supervised examination. On-going education is required to maintain the CPP designation.

The course includes eight general areas of study as follows:-

• Security Principles and Practices
• Business Principles and Practices
• Physical Security
• Investigations • Personnel Security
• Emergency Practices
• Information Security
• Legal Aspects (Canadian Civil & Criminal law)



I am also a member of the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) and am the former Chair of Montreal Chapter # 196
