How you will study: boot-camp class (5 days)
Pre-course, you will access the online learning platform. Here, you’ll go through the course which guides you to the relevant parts of the CPP POA materials. You can complete mock exams, practice questions, and have received a full explanation of the terminology within the materials. This helps to prepare you for the 5 day boot-camp.
Days one and two: explanation of the timetable of study and approach, followed by familiarisation with the learning domains and study materials.
Days three and four: explanation and discussion of the different domains, followed by consolidation and testing of existing knowledge to identify where further personal revision should be focused.
Day five: completion of mock exams followed by feedback and discussion.
Upon registering your place, you will also join the online learning platform to support your classroom training. There are five modules, each relating to core content from the ASIS CPP Protection of Assets and Standards & Guidelines.
You will be directed to the relevant parts within the CPP materials, and then self-assessment exams will test your understanding of the material. You will submit mock-exams which are reviewed by the course tutor, who feeds back on areas to study in more detail.
Please note that you will need to purchase your own copy of ASIS International’s ‘Protection of Assets’ and ‘Standards and Guidelines’ bundles. Along with the ‘Protection of Assets’, these seven Standards and Guidelines make up the CPP reference set:
- Senior Security Executive Standard
- Security and Resilience in Organizations and their Supply Chains Standard
- Workplace Violence and Active Assailant – Prevention, Intervention, and Response Standard
- Physical Asset Protection Standard
- General Security Risk Assessment Guideline
- Information Asset Protection Guideline
- Pre-employment Background Screening and Vetting Guideline
These are available at: www.asisonline.org. You will need these texts as far in advance of the course as possible in order to familiarise yourself with them and refer to them when attempting the supplementary online material prior to the course.
As part of this course, you will be given access to the CPP supplementary online material, which will assist you in familiarising yourself with the reference materials and terminology covered in the exam, and give you opportunities to undertake test exercises prior to the course.
