According to the IFPO, the CPO program is designed for protection professionals intent on improving their individual security skills.

CPO Final Challenge ExamFOCUS Study Notes

 

The CPO program was created by the IFPO to provide "current, useful, consolidated security training that provides vital 'need to know' information for Protection Officers throughout the Security Industry." We are not affiliated with IFPO.

The Certified Protection Officer (CPO) Final Challenge is an option which, for US$100.00, would allow you to receive the same designation as an individual who completed the CPO program under the regular course of study. The CPO Final Challenge option would reduce the time of study required since the only required examination involved in this program would be that of the CPO Final Examination.

The CPO Program Final Examination consists of 328 true/false and multiple choice questions, with a four (4) hour time limit. It has a coverage which is highly extensive - in fact so extensive that I wouldn't recommend taking the exam until you are fully drilled on the relevant topics.

Many CPO candidates are experienced professional who have been in the field of security for years, that they know most of the practical how-tos, and all they need is to learn the principles, concepts and science that are behind the essential security techniques. Going through all the reference material officially listed would be quite overwhelming for these busy professionals.   

ExamFOCUS Study Notes build a solid focus while revisiting key examination topics. Whether you are just starting to study, cramming at the last minute, or simply looking to refresh, this could prove to be a lifesaver!

To succeed in the exam you need to get yourself truly familiar with the most important information by going through sufficiently focused revision. This is where we fill the gap - you may think of our product as the unofficial supplement to the regular training class, or you may view it as a standalone module with a focus on building up your exam readiness.

As an effective learning aid implemented in the format of study notes, the ExamFOCUS CPO Study Notes package is designed to present information in an easy-to-understand, conversational format. Notes are well-written, technically accurate and completely representative of the key information covered by the exam.

THIS PRODUCT IS DESIGNED TO BE USED AS A MAJOR SUPPLEMENT TO THE OFFICIAL PROTECTION OFFICER TRAINING MANUAL FOR GUARANTEEING EXAM SUCCESS. YOU SHOULD PLAN YOUR STUDY IN TWO-STAGES. AT THE FIRST STAGE YOU STUDY THE OFFICIAL TRAINING MANUAL. THEN, AT THE SECOND STAGE YOU USE THIS PRODUCT FOR ADDITIONAL EXAM INFORMATION COVERAGE.

SAMPLE TEXT on Crime scene procedures
 

The primary purpose of crime scene investigation is to assist in establishing what happened (eg. crime scene reconstruction) and to identify the person involved. This would require the careful documentation of the conditions at the crime scene and the recognition of all the relevant physical evidence. The ability to recognize and properly collect physical evidence is most critical to solving and prosecuting violent crimes.

According to Byrd , the possible types of evidence that can be collected at the crime scene may include:

- Impressions include fingerprints, tool marks, footwear, fabric impressions, tire marks and bite marks.
- Forensic Biology includes blood, semen, body fluids, hair, nail scrapings, blood stain patterns,
- Trace Evidence includes gun shot residues, arson accelerant, paint, glass and fibers.
- Firearms includes weapons, gun powder patterns, casings, projectiles, fragments, pellets, wadding and cartridges.
- Question Documents

A successful investigator would never leap to an immediate conclusion as to what happened based upon limited information but would generate several different theories of the crime, keeping the ones that are not eliminated by incoming information at the scene.

Documenting crime scene conditions may include immediately recording transient details like lighting, drapes, weather, or furniture moved by medical teams. Certain kinds of evidence (such as shoeprints or gunshot residue) are more fragile in nature and must be collected immediately before getting destroyed or lost.

SAMPLE TEXT on Hazardous material handling


A Hazardous materials response (HAZMAT) team is a special group of employees who are trained and assigned to perform work to control leaks of hazardous substances, which would quite likely require close approach to the substance. The team members would perform responses to releases or potential releases of hazardous substances for the purpose of stabilization of the incident.
 

All employees working on site that may be exposed to hazardous substances, health hazards, or safety hazards should receive adequate training before they are permitted to engage in hazardous waste operations. They should be given regular review training as well.
 

You need to have a proper spill containment program in place. It would be most useful when major spills occur. Generally speaking, an appropriate combination of engineering controls, work practices, and personal protective equipment should be made sufficient enough for reducing employee exposure to or below published exposure levels for hazardous substances and health hazards. Personal protective equipment (PPE) should be chosen for protecting employees from the hazards and potential hazards they are likely to encounter.
