How you will study: Online learning (self-study)
Upon registering your place, you’ll join the online learning platform which hosts the study materials. There are five modules, each relating to core content from the ASIS PSP reference materials.
You will be directed to the relevant parts within the PSP materials, and then self-assessment exams test your understanding of the material. Mock exams are reviewed by the course tutor, who feeds back on areas to study in more detail.
Typically, learners complete this course in 4-6 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
