CPP 1


The Certified Protection Professional (CPP) certification from ASIS International is

globally recognised as the golden standard for security professionals. Obtaining

the CPP certification provides objective proof of your knowledge and management skills in the seven most relevant security domains.

CPP 3

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.

Candidates can choose between a CPP preparation programthat spans over a period of

approximately 4 months, a CPP bootcamp of 4 days or a tailor-made in-company

CPP preparation program.

CPP preparation program

Our CPP preparation program consists of 5 days, spread over approximately 4 - 5 months:


We start with two consecutive review days. During these days, we cover all CPP domains

with the help of the recommended study materials, supplemented with additional background material, practical examples and practice questions.

Approximately 6 weeks after the review days, two coaching days follow – each 6 weeks apart – aimed at deepening the knowledge and guiding participants during the study period.


The final day of the program - another 6 weeks later - is an exam training aimed at rehearsal

for the exam. Candidates are encouraged to take the exam as soon as possible after the exam

- preferably the following day.

Between the review days and the exam training, we offer virtual Q&A sessions to motivate and

coach our participants during their study.

Thanks to our structured approach, participants can start studying efficiently right after the review days. It is therefore not required to read the study material before the course, but may be done if preferred.

CPP bootcamp

Our Our CPP bootcamp consists of 4 consecutive days after which candidates are

encouraged to take the exam.


During the first three days we cover all CPP domains using the recommended study material, supplemented with additional background material, practical examples and practice questions. Finally, the exam training follows with the aim of repeating the most important concepts and preparation for the exam. Participants are expected to read the study materials before the start of the boot camp.

CPP 4

In-company CPP preparation program

Our in-company CPP preparation programs are always tailor- made. The program can be set up

in the form of a bootcamp, in the form of the regular bootcamp, or a combination of both.

Contact us for a proposal based on your needs.


Virtual or on location?

We prefer to physically conduct our preparation programs at a (relaxing) location as this promotes interaction. But all programs are also available virtually or in a blended-learning format.
