Is Certification Right For You?

Your uniform speaks volumes about your personal strengths. Earning an ASIS board certification conveys your professional strengths to peers and employers the world over.

  • Provides a way to build on previous security experience
  • Helps develop a proactive orientation
  • Eases the transition to a career in the private sector
“A police career alone doesn’t make you qualified for security management. You have to broaden and deepen your skill sets and your education.

ASIS certification has helped my reputation in the organization. I’m recognized as a subject matter expert, and I’ve been given greater job responsibilities.”
Nicholas G. Breiner, CPP, PCI, PSP, Belleville Police Department
"Earning a board certification was an important addition to my military experience and training. It validated my security knowledge and competency as well as opened the door to a worldwide network of peers with proven security management expertise.”Michael J. Allshouse, Colonel, USAF (Ret.), CPP, Director of Information Protection Air Education and Training Command
Qualified U.S. applicants may receive reimbursement for the certification exams through the G.I. Bill. An application is available at or call +1.888.442.4551 and request VA Form 22-1990.
