PSP 1

The Physical Security Professional (PSP) certificate from ASIS International demonstrates knowledge and experience in the field of risk, threat and vulnerability analyses; integrated physical security systems; and the identification, implementation and continuous evaluation of physical security measures.

In addition, the PSP certification is a confirmation of your specialist knowledge in the field of system purchasing, acceptance testing and implementation procedures of integrated security systems.

PSP 3

DutchRisk offers various programs to optimally prepare candidates for the PSP exam. Candidates can choose from a PSP preparation program that lasts approximately 3 months, a 3-day PSP bootcamp or a tailor-made in-company preparation program.

PSP preparation program

Our PSP preparation program consists of 4 days, spread over approximately 4 months:

We start with 2 consecutive review days. During these days we cover all PSP domains, using the recommended study material, supplemented with additional background material, practical examples and practice questions.

Approximately 4 weeks after the review days, two coaching days follow – each 4 weeks apart – aimed at deepening the knowledge and guiding participants during the study period.

The final day of the program - another 4 weeks later - is an exam training aimed at rehearsal and preparation for the exam. Candidates are encouraged to take the exam as soon as possible - preferably the day after the exam training.

Between the review days and the exam training, we offer virtual Q&A sessions to motivate and coach candidates 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 material beforehand, but may if the candidate prefers.

PSP 4

PSP bootcamp

Our PSP bootcamp consists of 3 consecutive days after which candidates are encouraged to take the exam - preferably the following day.

During the first two days we cover all PSP 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 bootcamp.

In-company PSP preparation programs

Our in-company PSP preparation programs are always tailor-made. The program may be set up in the form of a bootcamp, in the form of a regular preparation course, 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.
