PSA Security Network partnered with BICSI and ASIS to offer Continuing Education Credits (CECs) at PSA’s upcoming PSA-TEC event. Fourteen classes have been pre-qualified for BICSI and ASIS CECs, allowing attendees to benefit from a variety of training topics while maintaining their certifications.

Additionally, ASIS will host its ASIS Physical Security Professionals (PSP) Review at PSA-TEC. The PSP certification is a widely recognized and accepted certification for individuals in the business of designing, installing, selling and servicing physical security systems.

PSA-TEC offers manufacturer certification classes from Cisco, Arecont Vision, IQinVision, AMAG, and exacq Technologies.

Also offered at PSA-TEC will be the Security Project Management course which allows attendees to earn the Certified Security Project Manager (CSPM) accreditation, and the Electronic Security Networking Technician (ESNT) certification.

From May 16 to 20, 2011 PSA-TEC will be a one-stop-shop for education specific to the physical security industry. Through the addition of new discussion panels, training, and certification opportunities, attendees will be able to get training necessary to meet everyday challenges and succeed in the security industry, according to PSA. The five course tracks include: physical security, information technology, business optimization, a new managed services track, and a new technology showcase.

“We take input from the industry very seriously and I am pleased that we’ve been able to incorporate the ideas from our education advisory board and feedback from last year’s attendees into the program for 2011,” said Sharon Shaw, PSA Security’s director of education. “We have refined our educational offerings and are looking forward to a valuable event for all involved.”
