The International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO) was established as a non-profit organization in the USA at January 1988 for the purpose of facilitating the training and certification needs of protection officers and security supervisors/managers from both the commercial and proprietary sectors.
To meet this objective, the IFPO developed a number of comprehensive distance delivery styled courses; the Certified Protection Officer (CPO) program and the Certified In Security Supervision And Management (CSSM) program. All programs are designed to be completed through a self paced schedule of home study.
The European chapter of the International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO) was officially established as a non-profit organization in february 2006.
The goals of IFPO Europe are to act as the chapter for Europe and at a later stage to explore ways to organize individual chapters throughout Europe.
