The Certified Security Management Professional (CSMP®) is a 12-module Level 6 Accredited Diploma programme designed to take you progressively through the essentials of managing security in a corporate environment. Award is through continuous assessment.
The CSMP® Diploma is accredited by Industry Qualifications (IQ) as the Level 6 Organisation Diploma for Certified Security Management Professionals. It has been mapped against the UK National Occupational Standards for Security Management.

Is the CSMP® Level 6 Accredited Diploma for You?
The CSMP® Level 6 Accredited Diploma is a great qualification to have – over 1,000 security management professionals from 7 of the world’s top 10 companies certainly agree – but before making your final decision you should be sure that you have the capacity to complete the programme. In this regard there are five key factors to consider.

Academic Suitability
First, can you produce analysis and application at Level 6 (equivalent to 3rd year undergraduate)? The 12 monthly assignments that make up CSMP® are specifically designed to develop and then assess security management proficiency at advanced level. The focus of CSMP® is not on how much knowledge you can retain for closed book test of memory. Everything is “open book” and applied – with the focus on evidencing proficiency. If you are employed at below-management level, are you confident that you have abilities at a more advanced level necessary to complete this programme?

Time
Second, do you have time to commit? CSMP® is an accredited diploma, and the UK accreditation system requirement for diplomas is 370 hours, roughly equivalent to 30-40 hours of commitment a month.

Reading Speed and English Standand
Third is your reading speed sufficient? We try to keep the page count of unit textbooks to below 100 pages, but this nevertheless requires a good reading speed of English. Average readers of English reach around 200 wpm with a typical comprehension of 60%, and the programme is aimed at this group level. Thus, the 30 hours allocated to the monthly commitment includes up to 4 hours to read – and assimilate – the Unit Textbook.
While ISMI® doesn’t require formal proof of English language ability to be accepted to undertake the CSMP®, if you are not a native speaker of English your proficiency should be at one of the following equivalences to be able to use the course materials effectively:
IELTS Band 6 score http://ielts-academic.com/2012/06/28/how-to-get-a-band-6-score-in-academic-ielts/
Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/exams/advanced/

Experience
Fourth, do you have relevant experiences? Recognising that students come from a wide background (commercial security, government service, police, military, contractors, service providers, high-risk security advisors, diplomatic protection, educational establishment security etc.) many of the tasks are designed to be set in contexts that you select, or which are provided by case study.
If you have no security experience this course is probably not for you, unless your general business experience is extensive.
If you have military or police experience only, we can advise on a case-by-case basis if the course is suitable.

Equipment
As the programme is conducted over email there is a requirement for basic IT skills, familiarisation with MS Word etc.
The style of the assignments requires that you have access to either a Windows PC/laptop or Apple computer/laptop. Other devices such as Andoid tablets, iPads and Chromebooks, while good for reading the reference materials, are unliekly to be suitable for writing the assignments in the workbook provided.
All assignments have to be submitted as MS Word (.doc/docx) documents.
