The ACS Pacesetters and IFPO form strategic partnership

The training and education of frontline personnel (Officers, Supervisors and Managers) is vital to support their career development and helps raise the professional profile of security as an essential business function.

The ACS Pacesetters and IFPO UK have formed a strategic partnership allowing members of Pacesetters to access the IFPO education programs at a 5% discount rate.  These programs are available online, or via distance learning.

Established in 1988, The International Foundation for Protection Officers (IFPO) is a professional membership association that provides learning opportunities for frontline security officers, supervisors and managers which helps maximize job performance and enhance career potential.

Over 14,000 individuals have studied its certificate programs and over 92,500 have been through IFPO Certifications.

We hope that the members of ACS Pacesetters will take advantage of this excellent training opportunity to support the continued professional development of their staff.
