This is a foundation CPTED certificate course for community safety staff, rangers, new security staff, small business managers, and planning and architecture professionals. It will give you and your staff a practical grounding in CPTED principles to reduce crime.

The course is intended  for self-study  and contains all necessary materials.

There are 10 lessons each with an activity (a part of a real world CPTED project)  and assessment using multi-choice questions. Each lesson covers a key aspect of CPTED. The course supports learning by mistakes (you can redo the questions) and working at your own pace.

The course contains online resources and also pointers to additional resources for those students who want to dig deeper, make some advanced preparation for the Intermediate CPTED and Advanced CPTED Practitioner courses, or become more expert.

The payment for the course is by credit card via PayPal.
