Paul Barker an associate trainer at PerpetuityARC Training, part of Linx International Group, has been made a life member of ASIS International and life CPP. The accolade acknowledges his significant contribution to the international success of its Certified Protection Professional (CPP) qualification.
In 1993 Barker became the third security professional in the UK to be awarded the CPP qualification, and two years later he was instrumental in expanding the course in the UK by enabling the exam to be taken outside the US for the first time. As an ASIS training officer Barker delivered two courses a year, and in just three years CPP numbers in the UK rose to 94, resulting in him being presented with the inaugural Mervyn David Award by the UK Chapter of ASIS International.
Today, ASIS International is the world’s largest association of security management professionals, and PerpetuityARC Training is a long-standing ASIS education partner. The company recently revealed that 98% of security professionals choosing its courses to train for their ASIS Physical Security Professional (PSP) and CPP qualifications in 2018 passed their exam at the first attempt.
“The courses are very well developed and are expertly delivered in a manner that enables learners to retain the volumes of data and apply it to the exam,” explained Barker. “The material is extremely comprehensive and ties in perfectly with the recommended reading for the exam.”
“Paul’s contribution to the training continues to be exemplary and we are proud to have him as an important part of the PerpetuityARC Training team,” added Ciaran Barry, Director of Group Operations at Linx International Group. “He continues a long tradition of teaching security professionals to the highest standards, helping them attain meaningful qualifications that advance their careers.”
In addition to the ASIS training programmes, Barker also delivers the IQ Level 4 course Managing Security Risks in the Oil and Gas Sector. This programme is designed for professionals in the extraction, energy, exploration and production industries. His background in strategic security management at one of the world’s largest oil companies stands him in good stead as Linx International Group’s subject matter expert in this field.
PerpetuityARC Training will be at booth 1484 at the Global Security Exchange (GSX) to showcase its pathways to PSP and CPP qualifications that include intensive five and 10-day boot camps, online training programmes, and blended courses that combine distance learning with classroom sessions. Formerly known as the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, GSX takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from 23 – 27 September.
