The International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO) is dedicated to providing meaningful and cost effective security training for security guards and protection officers. We believe that education is a necessary and essential part of professional security training and the security officer's background. IFPO serves individuals, security companies, and organizations that have their own private security staff. Our students and members benefit from the recognition and standing that the prestigious IFPO certification conveys.
IFPO membership is available for both individuals and corporations, and we offer a "Members Only" area on this web site with extensive information on all aspects related to security training and protection work.
Our security training programs are designed to work on their own or as part of an organization's existing curriculum. Frequently, institutions of higher learning will include our security training programs in their courses of study.
The CPO program is designed for protection officers and security guards that are intent on improving their individual security skills. Successful CPO's find that the program significantly improves job performance and job enjoyment by providing an increased knowledge of the personal roles, jobs, duties and responsibilities of the security officer.
