Certified Counter Terrorism Practitioner (3 day)

CCTP ACCREDITATION 

The Certified Counter-Terrorism Practitioner program meets the requirements and those set forth in ISO 17024.

International Standard ISO/IEC 17024 is the benchmark and requirement for each organization providing certification of persons.

The requirements specified in ISO/IEC 17024 aim to help personnel certifying organizations protect the integrity and ensure the validity of their various personnel certification programs. Confidence in the respective certification schemes is achieved by means of a globally accepted process of assessment, subsequent surveillance and periodic re-assessments of the competence of certified persons

ABOUT THE CERTIFICATION SCHEME 

At the Certified Counter Terrorism Board, we have developed and maintained a voluntary and comprehensive certification scheme that is recognized as the standard of excellence for competent counter terrorism professionals. It has been designed by practitioners, for practitioners. This is critical, as it is only through understanding the threat of terrorism globally, having the ability to identify the various threats and modus operandi of the terrorist, and possessing the ability to assess the risk and to implement the necessary processes and technological protective measures, that we have the ability to prepare and respond to terrorist acts efficiently and effectively

WHY EARN THE CCTP CERTIFICATE? 

The CCTP certification provides demonstrable proof of knowledge, skill and experience in key areas for the purposes of mitigating the threat of terrorism, and by providing proactive measures to reduce the vulnerability of individuals and property to terrorist acts.
