ASIS International Launches Global Computer-Based Testing for Certification Exams

Alexandria, Va 2009-06-11

ASIS International, the preeminent organization for security management professionals worldwide, is expanding the administration of computer-based testing (CBT) to 32 locations outside of the United States and Canada, beginning July 1. International candidates for ASIS board certification previously had access only to paper-and-pencil exams.

International security practitioners approved by ASIS to take the examinations for the Certified Protection Professional (CPP), the Professional Certified Investigator (PCI) and the Physical Security Professional (PSP) credentials may visit this Web site.  The Web site will allow candidates to identify test locations and to schedule test dates in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia/Oceania.  A link to frequently asked questions is also provided as a resource.

“As ASIS looks to enhance its certification, education and networking opportunities globally, the conversion to CBT in countries throughout the world is a natural progression,” says Darryl R. Branham, CPP, president of the ASIS Professional Certification Board.

Nearly 2,000 candidates take the CPP, PCI and PSP exams each year.  Paper-and-pencil exams will continue for seven sites where CBT is currently unavailable—Ecuador, Jamaica, New Zealand, Panama, Qatar, Sweden, and Trinidad and Tobago. CBT has been available in the United States and Canada since 1998.
