IPSI – A New Kind of Public Safety Certification
- Launched on Open Standards: Public Safety Certification relies on a bedrock of known, quantifiable standards that are met in a measurable process. IPSI is currently building a universal Public Safety Certification that is open – allowing experts to review, contribute, and rely upon it to measure competence and expertise.
- Leveraging Existing Technologies: New technologies are researched, developed, and released almost every day. New technical innovations must balance risk, proximity, and adoption rates with quality, benefits, capabilities, and cost. IPSI delivers that balance – weighing the benefits of new tech while training personnel to be ready for what comes next.
- Combined with Best Practices: Best practices are established and maintained by a wide range of stakeholders in the public safety ecosystem. Public systems, practitioners, manufacturers, and many others all contribute to these practices used nationwide and internationally. IPSI will be a gold standard for what is accepted practice.
- Making Safety Standard: Public safety begins with confidence that those providing services are both educated and credentialed. IPSI Certifications combine expertise of current and emerging technologies and practice – assuring best practices and implementation every step of the way. IPSI Certifications are a seal of excellence and trust.
