Executive Protection Exam

24 July 2014 - 01 March 2015


The Executive Protection Certificate requires candidates to receive learning in key topics of executive protection. ASIS protects the integrity of the certificate by requiring candidates to pre-qualify for the exam by participating  in an ASIS Executive Protection classroom program prior to taking the exam. This site assists pre-qualified candidates in completing the assessment exam.

Only those pre-qualified will be allowed to take the exam.

Candidates who attended the course prior to December 2013 may not have received all topics that are currently covered within the certificate competencies and therefore are not elegible to take the exam. As the security certificate program expands, ASIS will develop additional methods for content delivery if appropriate for the learning.

To register for the exam, click the 'Register Now' icon on the right side of this page. Exam time is limited to 90 minutes. Once you begin the exam, you must complete it. You cannot stop and re-start. When you have submitted the completed exam, the score will be provided immediately. You must answer 70% of the questions correctly to meet the passing requirement.

At this time, ASIS is not able to provide an instant certificate, but your record will be sent on to the registrar for processing. You will receive your certificate via email in a couple of days from the time of completion.

If you fail to meet the pass requirements, you will have an opportunity to re-take a similar exam at a later date.

A certificate provides evidence of knowledge in a particular subject. A certificate shows that an individual has successfully met a series of requirements around a subject.

A certificate is similar to receiving a passing score of a single course at a college or university. A student must participate in class, complete the recommended reading, and score sufficiently on an assessment exam to meet the requirements. Only those participants in the current program may take the exam.

Testing is Voluntary.  You do not have to take the exam if you do not want the Certificate.

  • Cost - $75 for testing and evaluation.
  • How do I pay for the exam –You will receive an access URL for the testing site and a password. As you register for the exam, it will prompt you to pay by credit card.
  • When can I take the exam – The exam will be available for those qualified to sit for the exam one week after an Executive Protection classroom program has concluded.
  • When will I receive results – immediately upon submission of your exam.
  • When will I receive the certificate – The certificate is electronic and available for printout upon receiving a passing score. 
  • If you do not pass, you must wait 48 hours before taking the exam again. You will have to contact ASIS to re-set the exam in order to re-take the exam.
  • You have 3 opportunities to take the exam. $75 for the first exam and $50 for each re-take. ASIS encourages you to prepare for the first exam so that the re-take is not necessary.
