The National Sheriffs’ Association in partnership with the National Domestic Preparedness Coalition (NDPCI) is proud to announce the official rollout of two certification programs, the Certified Homeland Protection Professional (CHPP) and Certified Homeland Protection Associate (CHPA).
The CHPP and CHPA are backed by a certification board that consists of recognized leaders in the Homeland Protection Arena. Board members include law enforcement leaders, private industry security professionals, homeland security leadership, fire service leadership, emergency management leadership, and health and medical professionals. The certification board reviews all Certified Homeland Security Professional requirements and ensures that they meet the highest standard. The Board Certification provides an objective means of distinguishing highly competent homeland protection professionals from their less experienced peers.
Those who qualify for the certification, upon official notification of approval, may use the CHPP or CHPA designation (as applicable) following their name. The designations certify that individuals have demonstrated competency, knowledge, skills and abilities in the blended discipline of Homeland Protection, through a rigorous qualification and testing program.
