ABOUT PSPA

PSPA is an Interactive (on-line) Membership Based Security Organization.

Established in March of 2010, PSPA was founded for the betterment of the private security industry, its practitioners, and end users, which include: Private Security Professionals, the Employers of Private Security Professionals, and the Clients who contract services of Private Security Agencies.

PSPA understands that Private Security plays a significant role in the day-to-day protection of people and assets. The steadfast growth in Private Security coupled with the broadened responsibilities placed upon the Private Security sector, further necessitates the effective hiring, training and deployment of educated security personnel to accomplish the needs of the industry and those served by the industry. PSPA footnotes that many States require an occupational license to work as a security professional yet many States have no requirements. Occupational licenses, permits, and/or commissions may include a criminal background check and mandated training. However a national standard ceases to exist. 

To this end, PSPA has developed a number of Networking as well as Training and Certification Programs to better educate all U.S. employed Private Security (Officers, Supervisors, and Managers) in addition to Employers and Clients who: own, manage, oversee and/or engage security programs, security personnel and/or life safety services. 

PSPA Training programs are accepted by countless agencies, institutions, and organizations (both public and private) as Continuing Education Hours/Continuing Education Units (CEU'S).

PSPA is an approved Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Provider for the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA/BOMI) â–ºReal Property Administrator RPA®, Facilities Management Administrator FMA®, Systems Maintenance Administrator SMA®, and Systems Maintenance Technician SMT® designations; a Continuing Education Provider to the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS), the National Domestic Preparedness Coalition (NDPC), the National Sheriffs Association (NSA); and an approved Training & Continuing Education School for the Department of Public Safety (TXDPS Private Security Bureau) to name just a few.
