About ISMI's CPP and PSP Instructor

David Cresswell CPP PSP is the UK’s best-known and most successful trainer of candidates preparing for the ASIS CPP certification and is a recipient of the UK ASIS Chapter Annual Mervyn Davies Award for the exceptionally high examination pass rates achieved by candidates attending his courses. 


David, personally, is one of the highest ever scoring students for both the CPP and PSP examinations, achieving results falling in the top one percentile of all candidates.  For the past 10 years and in close collaboration with the certification management team at ASIS International, David has used his extensive understanding of the ASIS certification knowledgebase to lead hundreds of candidates to success in both the CPP and PSP examinations. So far in 2016, all candidates sitting the CPP and PSP examinations trained by David have achieved first-time passes.


Having held several key volunteer positions with ASIS International including membership of the ASIS Professional Certification Board International Liaison Committee, membership of the ASIS Advisory Committees for Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and a former UK Chapter Certification Officer, David has a unique insight into the make-up of the examination and an in-depth knowledge of the study requirements, and is often called on by ASIS to participate in job analysis reviews that form the foundation for CPP examination development.


In recent months David has prepared CPP and PSP candidates from the National Crime Agency, Metropolitan Police, Sussex Constabulary, NHS, Lloyds Bank, HSBC Bank, Lukoil, De Beers, AIG, Save the Children, Siemens, ABB, Northern Trust, Prudential, Amazon Germany, Irish Defence Forces, Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority, Western Union, Securitas, Saipem, Sunderland University and Four Seasons Hotel.
