School Dangers, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded to improve the safety and security of school age children, has selected as its partner to launch a new online training and certification program. This program is targeted at teaching security practitioners who specialize in K-12 security or security industry professionals who are tasked with security planning key elements such as practical considerations for school security and safety, legislative factors, government actions and published procedures for school safety, and tactical and strategic considerations when it comes to the safety of our children.

The Certified School Safety Professional (CSSP) series 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 the legislative landscape; CSSP-II covers security assessments, mitigation strategies, and introduces planning; and 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.
