The United International Security Associations
Certification Program

Your Certificate  - we honor your work experience!


“When you do your job for so many years, you don’t feel like spending hours in a classroom, paying a
lot of money, to hear things you already know from practice. At least like 80%. But if you don’t have a certification,
that really limits your career possibilities. I saw an ad on Facebook and applied online.
The IAPPA certification board contacted me, asked for more documentation, ran background checks and, after I confirmed the requirements, I got certified. It was simple but not easy. And because they took it seriously, I know it’s worth it.” 
A. Ortega, Certified Security Manager in Dubai.


The United International Security Associations certificate program is considered a milestone in the security industry because your professional achievements are rewarded with one of our certificates. We offer an opportunity for professional success to those who have had a lot of experience in the profession, but have received little evidence in the form of certificates.  


Let's be honest - what use is it if someone decides to become a security officer, meets the respective national requirements of the authorities and then sits down at the PC and completes countless partly questionable and pointless online courses with which he then applies for a job? It will also not be able to prove any professional experience for a long time and builds its "experience" on a few hours of online training.


We honor the employees who have been in the field for years, but may have few and no certificates because there was no time or money for this. Or the soldier who has been in the military for many years in security and at the end of their service only has proof of their military career! Are they less good or qualified employees than the one who has 20 online certificates but has completed just a handful of deployments? Most certainly not! We want to honor these people and give them the opportunity to apply for one of the IAPPA/WSPA/ISSDA certificates. 


Membership in IAPPA is not required. However, we are always happy to welcome new members to our international community.
