Executive Track for Sports Security Professionals 


The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) offers the Sport Security Professional Executive Track, which provides safety and security professionals (Professional, Collegiate, High School and Marathon) with an accelerated pathway for professional and career development. The Executive Track is designed to tie the various components of the CSSP curriculum into a unifying framework that prepares participants for the CSSP examination. The courses place special emphasis on the core knowledge domains of the CSSP certification, including Business and Facility Management, Emergency Planning, Emergency Management, Crowd Management, Legal and Regulatory and Security Principles and Practice.
The training courses represent a cooperative effort between the University of Southern Mississippi's National Center for Spectator Sport Safety and Security (USM/NCS4) and the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service's National Emergency Response and Rescue training Center (TEEX/NERRTC), a member of the Texas A&M University System.
