The ASIS International Professional Certification Board has completed a job analysis study for the
Professional Certified Investigator (PCI) and
Physical Security Professional (PSP) exams.
Completed every five years, the job analysis study ensures our board certification exam content aligns with the knowledge and skills needed to be successful physical security professionals or professional certified investigators. While the Domains of the PSP and PCI remain the same, the percentage of questions per Domain has changed.
The new exam contents will first appear on the exams starting in November 2017.
PLEASE NOTE: The PCI's Professional Investigator Manual and the four volume PSP reference set will stay the same. If you have questions or need more information, please contact our certification team at
