Certified Protection Officer (CPO) Final Challenge
The Final Challenge is similar to the regular CPO certification program, except the candidate does not receive a textbook or the CPO Online training. In this way texts can be shared and costs reduced. Additionally, the midterm/interim exam is eliminated in the Final Challenge Option.
The Final Challenge Option may be appropriate for employers or schools who wish to provide texts. It also aids individual candidates who acquire a text on their own and feel comfortable taking the final examination without the midterm/interim preparation.
Candidates study each of the 45 chapters of the text "The Professional Protection Officer", and when they feel ready arrange to write the challenge exam. PSS will be happy to assist in the registration, and will also provide a suitable proctor.
Each chapter of the the text is available here for download in a Microsoft Word format
