Training & Certification

Certified School Security Professional (CSSP) Training & Certification by SDO

CSSP is broken into three levels to let you focus on the depth of knowledge you need.

  • CSSP-I focuses on awareness of the problems K-12 schools face and legislative landscape.
  • CSSP-II covers security assessments, mitigation strategies, and introduces planning.
  • CSSP-III builds on the previous levels and incorporates more in depth emergency management planning, including Federal NIMS and ICS.

CSSP-I and II are anticipated to meet the needs of a majority of school level officials, security practitioners, and school security committees. CSSP-III is targeted towards the school committee chair, SME, district, county, and state level planners.
