Frequently asked questions

Who should attend these programs?

ACPI courses have been developed for anyone involved in the safety and security of buildings, campuses and communities. This includes state and local law enforcement, campus law enforcement, community planners, school administrators, architects, designers, security and loss prevention professionals, security consultants and security service providers. Some programs are also highly relevant to individual businesses and business owners.

Is there an exam?

Any course that is marked as a "Certification Program" does have an exam at the end. Exams will be administered online, and attendees must complete the exam successfully in order to be credited with the accompanying certification.

Do the certifications expire?

No. All ACPI certifications are lifetime.

Will I have access to the slides?

Yes. All programs - whether live, self-paced or in-person - will have an accompanying website that contains the presentation materials and any related handouts and resources. Please note that the slides are proprietary intellectual property of ACPI, and to prevent unauthorized distribution we do not allow them to be downloaded to your computer. You will, however, have access to them in perpetuity and we also offer the option of purchasing printed copies directly from our printing partner. Contact us to learn more.

Can I register a group of people at one time?

Yes. We offer discounts for registering multiple people from the same organization at the same time. See each course page for more details.
