Lft-quote[I]have used your program as a baseline to qualify several members of my security staff, and this process is not only a benefit for them to increase their own level of proficiency and professional development, but it is also an asset to the organization to have people trained and certified to an internationally recognized professional certification. The CPO Program is firing on all the right cylinders and is easily adaptable to any environment since the majority of the principles are universal. Rt-quote

Lft-quote[Y]ou may be interested to know, we at The City of Calgary have been moving towards in-house Guards and one of our Job requirements is that they must Obtain their CPO certification within 6 months of hire. We have in-house Supervisors as well and our postings moving forward will be making it a requirement to obtain their CSSM as well. I have many years experience, have CPO, now decided to do CSSM so I know what all our staff have to go through, to be fair to them. We believe our extensive in-house training, as well as these certification requirements make our guards and Supervisors stronger overall. Many of our recent hires have obtained their CPO, and we will be proud to continue our requirements moving forward with IFPO certifications as a great head start in their careers. Rt-quote
