PerpetuityARC Training associate Paul Barker made life member of ASIS International and life CPP

PerpetuityARC Training, which is part of the Linx International Group, has announced that associate trainer Paul Barker has been made a life member of ASIS International and a life CPP. The accolade acknowledges Barker’s significant contribution to the international success of ASIS International’s Certified Protection Professional qualification.

In 1993, Barker became the third security professional in the UK to be awarded the CPP qualification. Two years later, he was instrumental in expanding the course in the UK by enabling the examination to be taken outside of the US for the first time.

As an ASIS training officer, Barker delivered two courses per year, and in just three years CPP numbers in the UK rose to 94. This resulted in Barker 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. PerpetuityARC Training is proud to be 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 examinations at the first attempt.

Explaining the reasons for PerpetuityARC Training’s success, Barker said: “The courses are very well developed and expertly delivered in a manner that enables learners to retain the volumes of data and apply it to the examination. The material is extremely comprehensive and ties-in perfectly with the recommended reading for the exam.”

Ciaran Barry, director of Group operations at the Linx International Group, stated: “Paul’s contribution to the training continues to be exemplary and we’re proud to have him as an important part of the PerpetuityARC Training team. 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. Barker’s background in strategic security management at one of the world’s largest oil companies stands him in good stead as the Linx International Group’s subject matter expert in this particular field.
