To qualify for PSP education, security professionals must possess an undergraduate degree and four years of security experience, or a high school diploma or GED combined with six years of work experience.

The PSP exam challenges security professionals to answer more than 100 multiple choice questions spread across three distinct aspects of physical security. Questions take into account basic security knowledge, as well as the ways in which this knowledge can be applied to on-the-job scenarios. Prior to taking the test, security professionals should visit http://www.asisonline.org, and review the 60 minute PSP online seminar in order to determine whether the certification is the correct credential for their profession.
