The ASIS CPP® qualification enhances career opportunities by demonstrating management skills in seven key security domains. It is one of the most widely recognised security management qualifications in the world. CPP accreditation provides employers, colleagues and peers with professional assurance of the holder’s advanced knowledge.

Core content

The seven key domains covered with the CPP exam are:

  • Security principles and practices
  • Business principles and practices
  • Investigations
  • Personnel security
  • Physical security
  • Information security
  • Crisis management

How you will study: Online learning (self-study)

Upon registering your place, you will join the online learning platform which hosts the course. You’ll receive a full guide on how to take the course, including video tutorials and explanations.

Complete a module at a time, each one relating to core content from the ASIS CPP Protection of Assets and Standards & Guidelines. These modules related directly to the CPP material, and is designed to prepare you fully for your exam when the time comes.

You will be directed to the relevant parts within the CPP materials, followed by the self-assessment exams that will test your understanding of the material.

When you’re ready to move on, you’ll then complete a full mock-exam which is instantly marked so you can see any areas that you should revise further. Full results of your mock-exams can be downloaded to PDF, to help you study offline.

Typically, learners complete this course in 1-6 months, but this is entirely down to your personal and professional commitments, and your individual learning style. You’ll have access to the course for a 12 month period, so there’s plenty of time to complete. However, we do recommend that you set a goal for taking the exam in mind before you start, so that you have a date to work towards.
