My SIA CSPM training gave me the knowledge to run a large project more efficiently, effectively and profitably with, of course, a greater level of customer satisfaction

There is only one project manager certification that focuses on the special requirements of the security industry - SIA's Certified Security Project Manager (CSPM) program.
The CSPM course from the Security Industry Association (SIA) is designed specifically to address the "practical" aspects of designing and managing security projects by requiring candidates to demonstrate their ability to implement the concepts of professional project management in a security environment. In order to be certified through this intensive program, students must complete both a self-study portion and four to five days of classroom instruction - attaining a passing score on the final exams - and document the required number of hours of project management experience.
Graduates of the course say the training has proven to be valuable both for their careers and for their employers.
"My SIA CSPM training gave me the knowledge to run a large project more efficiently, effectively and profitably with, of course, a greater level of customer satisfaction," said Clyde Conn, national accounts coordinator for Siemens Building Technologies.
SIA has two more CSPM courses scheduled this year - Sept. 23-26 in Irvine, Calif., hosted by Hirsch Electronics, and Nov. 2-6 in Buffalo Grove, Ill., hosted by Siemens Building Technologies. Applications for the September class are being accepted through Sept. 4.
More information is available on the SIA Web site or by contacting Florence Dennis-Huskin, SIA's manager of education and training, at (703) 647-8498.
