Cundall and PerpetuityARC Training Delivering ASIS International Certification Program Across Entire Security Consultancy
When Cundall decided to adopt the ASIS International Certification program, at all levels throughout its entire Global Security Consultancy team, it was a world first. In order to meet the bold ambition for everyone to hold an ASIS qualification, a world-class education partner was needed and as the UK’s first Global ASIS Preferred CPE Provider, the Linx International Group company, PerpetuityARC Training, was the ideal choice.
The Security Consultancy specialism is part of Cundall – an international multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy. It is on an impressive growth trajectory, being awarded major contracts with blue-chip organisations around the work and expanding into new territories including Australia and Asia. It provides a comprehensive offering throughout the project lifecycle, helping clients understand how to mitigate the real-time security threats and risks to their people and business with design, delivery and operational solutions.
Choosing the UK’s first Global ASIS Preferred CPE Provider as an education partner
Working together with PerpetuityARC Training and its expert tutors, Cundall’s global team of Security Designers and Consultants, Senior Consultants, Principal Consultants, Associates and Directors will study for ASIS International’s globally recognised and respected qualifications – Associate Protection Professional (APP), Physical Security Professional (PSP®) and Certified Protection Professional (CPP®).
Darren Wood is the Director of Cundall’s Global Security Consultancy specialism and he explains the rationale for aligning with the world’s largest membership organisation for security management professionals – ASIS International: “Cundall expects every employee with ambitions to reach the top of the organisation, to attain the highest qualification and certification available in their respective discipline. For us in the Security Consultancy team, CPP® status represents the gold-standard for security professionals.” He makes the observation: “What particularly impressed us about ASIS International and PerpetuityARC Training was the clear pathway they could define for each of our team to achieve their potential.”
Best-in-class training to pass APP, PSP and CPP first time
Sarah Hayward-Turton is the Sales and Marketing Director at the Linx International Group and comments on the partnership with Cundall: “We are working closely with all members of Cundall’s Security Consultancy team, providing them with all the resources and support they need to pass their exam first time and gain that invaluable external validation of their knowledge and skills.” She continues: We take time to assess the specific training requirements of each individual and tailor their program to ensure they are on the right pathway to achieve their ASIS qualification.”
Support provided by PerpetuityARC Training includes course materials, fortnightly mentoring sessions with expert tutors and intensive boot-camps, which have proven to achieve phenomenal levels of success, time and time again. In fact, 98% of learners who took one of its PSP® and CPP® exam preparation courses in the past two years passing on their first attempt.
A perfect partnership between three world-class organisations
Mike Hurst is the Vice Chairman of ASIS UK Chapter and he says: “ASIS UK are delighted that Cundall, a major international multi-disciplinary consultancy, have decided to align the professional development of their security consultants globally, with the ASIS International Certifications, APP PCI PSP and CPP: they are already all ASIS Members. We are especially pleased that Cundall has identified CPP as being an equivalent to Chartership (for internal purposes) for senior members within their team.”
Sarah adds: “Cundall has raised the bar in aligning its consultancy-wide training initiatives with the ASIS International Certification program. It is my hope that this sets a precedent for other organisations. Investing in personal development, a robust and rigorous training framework, and adhering to a strict professional code of conduct is one of the best ways to set and maintain the very highest standards across the security sector.”
Darren concludes: “Our drive is to make our people the very best they can be. PerpetuityARC Training’s world-class teaching and the globally recognised and respected ASIS International qualifications, fit the development goals of our team perfectly. We have our sights set on becoming the largest security consultancy in the world and with the long-term commitment we have made to training, education and standards we also plan on being the very best.”
The first PSP® and CPP® qualifications are expected to be presented to members of the Cundall Security Consultancy team before the end of 2019 with further certifications scheduled for January 2020.
