Build your career
On a solid foundation of assets protection

Gain a broad, in-depth perspective of the principles of assets protection at APC I. Don't miss this opportunity to exchange ideas, discover new techniques, and identify strategies that will energize you in today's challenging security environment.

APC I, the cornerstone of ASIS' educational programming, is essential for all professionals involved in the protection of assets. Not only does it provide a solid foundation, but it goes beyond to give you the broad view and best practices you need to succeed in today's challenging security landscape.

I started the APC series in 2009 while working as a regional security officer in a local bank in Nigeria. In 2010 when I completed APC II, I got promoted to the assistant chief security officer in the same bank. I did the final course in the series in 2012 and I have just been appointed the country's head of security in another bank in Nigeria. The APC series has been the cornerstone of my loss prevention knowledge and the basis for the quick rise in my career. I use the knowledge, skills acquired, and the network developed during these programs daily. I would highly recommend the APC Series for individuals working in asset protection.
