CPO 1

For many security professionals, IFPO Europe's Certified Protection Officer (CPO) certificate is

the first step towards international recognition.

IFPO's CPO certificate is aimed at security professionals wanting to improve their

individual security skills.

Therefore, qualify yourself in the security risk management discipline and join the network

of IFPO certified security professionals. In collaboration with the board of IFPO Europe,

DutchRisk facilitates a CPO exam 4 times a year.

The content and assessment of the exam is the responsibility of IFPO Europe.

To gain the title of CPO, the candidate needs to study IFPO's book "The Professional Protection

Officer" and complete the exam with success.

By obtaining the CPO certification, proof of knowledge and security skills in the basic security

domains are demonstrated. Furthermore, it offers a great opportunity to meet colleagues

from the sector, to exchange experiences about actual developments in the field and to orientate

yourself internationally.

You can optimally prepare for this exam by participating in the CPO preparation program

. or the CPO exam training offered by DutchRisk. 

DutchRisk - until recently in association with European Security Academy - has been

conducting programs to prepare candidates for the CPO exam for more than 20 years.

preparaten for the exam.

the CPO exam amount to € 250 and will be charged separately.
