Our eligibility requirements for all ASIS certification programs have changed to better align with the security management profession of today. Just as the security management professional has matured, so too have ASIS’s certification programs. Therefore, the Professional Certification Board—the governing body behind ASIS’s renowned certification programs—has determined that our requirements should reflect this growth. These changes apply to all four of ASIS’s certifications.
How are the eligibility requirements changing?
In most instances, the years of professional experience required to apply for certification have been reduced by one or two years. We have also eliminated the need to hold a degree specifically in the security field. The rigor and benefits of earning certification will remain unchanged, but these updates make ASIS certification more accessible to qualified security professionals deserving of recognition.
