SIA Security Project Manager Course
The Security Industry Association (SIA) project manager training program focuses on the unique demands of electronic security projects, an approach that attendees say provides significant benefits in a short amount of time.
SIA’s four-day Certified Security Project Manager (CSPM) program stresses the hands-on aspects of designing and managing security projects and is aimed at helping attendees achieve the hallmarks of effective project management – bringing projects in on time and on budget. It is offered several times a year in the United States and Canada.
Keith Cohick of Security Management Consulting, meanwhile, said that the CSPM program’s focus on the security industry sets it apart from other project management courses and gives security professionals the expertise needed to “step in and share the limelight of a security project.” The course, he added, is a wise investment for both security project managers and their employers.
“This class was one of the best classes that I have attended during my career,” Cohick said after taking the course in Virginia in June. “I realize the cost can be a concern to many companies in this day and age. However, my personal opinion is that after completing this class, that person brings back the information and shares it with upper management. At that point, you can restructure and or make minor changes to your company processes. The cost up-front will be made back many times over.”
