Integrators are taking notice of CSPMs because security projects are being managed more efficiently and financial management improves when they hire Certified Security Project Managers.
(PRWEB) March 09, 2016
The Security Industry Association (SIA) will offer a special opportunity to sit for the Certified Security Project Manager (CSPM®) exam during ISC West 2016 in Las Vegas on Wednesday, April 6.
Produced by ISC Events, ISC West is the largest security industry trade show in the United States. Those attending the ISC West exhibition and conference, on April 5-8 in Las Vegas, will have the chance to meet with technical reps from more than 1,000 exhibitors and brands in the security industry and network with more than 28,000 security professionals.
"Integrators are taking notice of CSPMs because security projects are being managed more efficiently and financial management improves when they hire Certified Security Project Managers," said Kimberly Roberts, SIA Director of Education. "With the CSPM certification, companies can distinguish qualified security project managers. When hiring CSPMs, employers know they are hiring the right people who are capable of completing a project on time and on budget."
A CSPM® is a professional experienced in managing a security project, which typically entails installing and integrating various components of a security system into a physical building structure. Credentialed professionals who pass the exam are recognized as experienced and competent project managers equipped to deal with the challenges of a security project.
The CSPM® exam is designed to evaluate candidates seeking professional certification in the field of security project management. Download the CSPM® Candidate Information Brochure (CIB) to assess your eligibility and email your completed exam application (found in the CIB) to Kimberly Roberts at email@example.com no later than Thursday, March 30.
On the day of the exam, candidates should bring their laptops to the examination room by 12:15 p.m. PT. SIA staff will set up your laptop to take the exam, and then you will have two hours to complete it.
