Members of the IAPSC who specialize in security technology consulting update their knowledge of available products, features and configurations by attending a number of manufacturer sponsored seminars each year. Lodging and other travel for such training sessions are sometimes provided by the manufacturer since the manufacturer benefits from expert feedback on their products. The IAPSC does not consider acceptance of such expenses by its members in contradiction to its independence requirements, so long as the member attends training from multiple manufacturers and specifies products from multiple manufacturers.
Nothing in the IAPSC Bylaws prohibits any member from complying with any law or regulation, by any governmental or regulatory body, which requires that security consultants be registered or licensed as a private investigator or any other related security registration or license, however the member shall not practice or advertise such services.
The IAPSC has compiled this Directory as a source of names and specialties of consultants for potential clients and other members. Although IAPSC has compiled the Directory based on information supplied by the members listed and has vetted each member for compliance with the IAPSC membership requirements, it has not reviewed, investigated, or evaluated the authenticity, accuracy or completeness of the information published on each profile. The consultants listed in this Directory operate as independent agents. They are listed together here solely as a service to clients, potential clients, and other members of the Association. Resumes or curriculum vitae are available to prospective clients directly from each consultant listed.
