CPOI Program

As the IFPO program, the Certified Protection Officer (CPO), gains momentum and is rapidly becoming the most industry recognized certification, so does the need to recognize the individuals behind the instruction and delivery of the program. More and more security program instructors, educators, as well as administrators are seeking recognition and tangible proof of their efforts in bringing professional development programs to career security officers.


The IFPO, upon recent demand, has created a method in which quality recognition and reward may be granted to those committed professionals, hence the Certified Protection Officer Instructor (CPOI) has recently been formulated.


Applicants for the CPOI must meet the following prerequisites to apply:


  • Five years teaching experience or equivalent

  • Three years security experience or equivalent

  • Post Secondary Education or equivalent

  • Completed the Certified Protection Officer Program

  • Member of the IFPO

  • Completion of comprehensive CPOI application
