PHYSICAL SECURITY ENGINEERING TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION PROGRAM (PSET&C)
Haines' security design school
The PSET&C program is comprised of two parts.
First, there is a training portion involving a series of in-classroom instruction or distant learning virtual classrooms focusing on the integration of security technologies into building design and the development of mitigation strategies as they relate to the protection of people and the built environment they occupy.
The second part, involves an internationally accepted certification of a person's qualifications based on three criteria, 1) academic studies, 2) published works and 3) public presentations. What sets the PSET&C program apart from other certification programs is the fact that we accept any and all accredited academic studies regardless of its origin.
Other programs require that you use their study materials, take their test and receive their certification. Instead, many of our designees have relied on previous military training or collegiate studies to meet the academic studies portion of the qualification. Some have used a combination of courses they taken with us and with other institutions. The basic level designation is the Antiterrorism Design Specialist (ADS)/ Physical Security Engineer (PSE) and requires only academic studies. Higher level designation; i.e., Senior Antiterrorism Design Specialist (SADS)/ Physical Security Engineer (SPSE) and Master Antiterrorism Design Specialist (MADS)/ Physical Security Engineer (MSPE) require applicants to have spoken at industry conferences and published materials in their subject matter of expertise.
The addition of our Antiterrorism Design Specialist (ADS) and Physical Security Engineer (PSE) certification to our award winning Physical Security Engineering Training and Certification Program (PSET&C) and the creation of a virtual classroom format with mentoring garnered a Platinum ASTOR Award for Best Multi-discipline Education Program in Homeland Security for 2020.
