Security Officer Certification  
USCG Certified and Accredited Training
Maritime Protective Services (MPS) is offering a Port Facility Security Officer (PFSO) / Ship Security Officer (SSO) & Company Security Officer (CSO) Certification course, consisting of 28 hours (3 days) of instruction covering all required elements as specified in the ISPS Code (B/13.1, 13.2 and 18.1.) and MTSA 33-CFR (104.210, 104.215, 105.205). This course provides trainees with a detailed knowledge and understanding of the ISPS Code and the MTSA, thus allowing them to carry out the responsibilities bestowed upon Port Facility, Company, and Ship Security Officers.

This training is certified and is accredited by Florida Institute of Technology (Florida Tech), in the United States by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) on behalf of the US Coast Guard and the US Maritime Administration (MARAD), and in the UK by the Department for Transport (TRANSEC) and Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA). All delegates successfully completing the courses will receive certification from Florida Tech, the USCG, MARAD, and/or TRANSEC/ MCA.

Depending on the circumstances, MPS can also offer training at our training facility in Poole (UK), on board your ship, or at your facility, no matter where in the world. We will always work with you to provide training in the most practical manner possible.

Class sizes are limited.
