ISMI®, the International Security Management Institute, is the exclusive provider of the Certified Security Management Professional (CSMP®) Level 6 Accredited Diploma. The CSMP® is the global-leading diploma in security management with over 600 security management professionals enrolling every year for the highly-acclaimed 12-month distance-learning programme. Participants represent a wide range of sectors: commercial, NGO and government, and are drawn from 120 countries. For several national and multinational organisations, CSMP® has become the standard qualification.
The CSMP® programme is characterised by its emphasis on evidencing proficiency across 12 core subject areas through applying security management best practice to solving case-study tasks. It is both challenging and hugely enriching, and as with all ISMI® courses, participants are fully supported through telephone, email and online meetings. There are no essays to write and no memory-test examination at the end. Assessment is continuous, and with a marking team of over 20 current security managers from all over the world a very accurate assessment of professional development is delivered.
In addition to the distance-learning CSMP® Diploma, ISMI® conducts preparation programmes for the ASIS CPP and PSP certifications, combining classroom learning with coach-supported home study. The unique approach adopted by ISMI® results in a very high first-time pass rate in both the CPP and PSP examinations.
