Convert Your American Board for Certification in Homeland Security Certifications to a CHPA or CHPP
Thank you for your inquiry on converting your ABCHS Homeland Security Certification to a National Sheriffs’ Association/Global Society of Homeland and National Security Professionals Certification. We would like to assist you in this and make it as seamless as possible.
Our certification levels are as follows:
Certified Homeland Protection Associate Level I (CHPA I)
Certified Homeland Protection Associate Level II (CHPA II)
Certified Homeland Protection Associate Level III (CHPA III)
Certified Homeland Protection Associate Level IV (CHPA IV)
And our top level of certification is:
Certified Homeland Protection Professional (CHPP). This would equate to a CHS Level 5 Certification.
CHS to NSA/GSHNSP Certification Conversion Process
To convert your certification to a NSA/GSHNSP Certification, you will:
- Go online to our Global Society Webpage and become a member which is $25.00 per year. The Global website address is https://www.globalhomeland.org/.
- Please complete a Certification Application, which can be found on our Global Society for Homeland and National Security Professionals website https://www.globalhomeland.org/certification-application/.
- Next, submit documentation showing your present CHS Certification Level and request converting it to a NSA/GSHNSP Certification. This documentation should also include your present CHS Certification expiration date, a copy of your driver’s license, a resume and proof of a college degree, if applicable. These documents can be uploaded on the certification application or be emailed to email@example.com.
If you complete and submit this before January 1, 2018, we will transfer over your CHS certification for free until the expiration date listed on it, then you will renew your NSA/GSHNSP certification and pay the initial fee for that particular certification. Those prices can be found on our Global Society website. Thereafter every two years you will need to re-certify and pay the renewal fee. At this time the renewal fee for CHPP/CHPA members is $95.00. These prices may change without notice.
Thank you again for you inquiry of joining the NSA/GSHNSP team. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
ATTENTION ABCHS (CHS) CERTIFICATE HOLDERS:
