The Greater Kansas City ASIS International Chapter holds an annual CPP Study session.  The chapter provides all the necessary material to successfully take the exam. Participants are given homework assignments which they are expected to complete and share with the group the following session. Participants will be expected to provide a presentation to the group. Some reading assignments may be lengthy. Participants are encouraged to bring a flash drive so assignments can be transferred electronically. A $100.00 “CASH” deposit is collected to help ensure all materials and work is turned in. When a participant completes all their assignments and returns any text that may have been lent out, their cash deposit is returned. If the participant leaves with work assignments not completed or fails to return lent text, their deposit is forfeited. The study sessions are intended to serve “current” Kansas City ASIS International Chapter members. Details for the session are:
