ASIS PSP To Do Or Not To Do?

Having a good background in IT and information security I am currently interested in physical security to complete security consultant career. This the main reason joining IPVM and learning to get deep knowledge on cameras and access control. While googling I have discovered ASIS few years ago and now I have to make a decision like "to do or not to do". I've read through other discussions here touching ASIS but still have some questions:

If IPVM is a technology deep dive, then ASIS PSP is what?

Is it worth to spend money and time to achieve PSP inside and outside of US? Does this certificate has a real value? Will be grateful for replies.
