About the Offer

This unique offer consists of full IPVM membership access for (1) year plus (1) IPVM course credit. The value of this offer is $500. The cost for qualifying recently separated military members and law enforcement professionals is $0.

Why this Offer?

Given my background as a former service member, John proposed an interesting question to me- is there anything IPVM can do to support military veterans and law enforcement professionals? Rather than giving a blanket discount- or a special, one-time offer, I suggested something more targeted and focused on professional development.

After serving 6 years on active duty as a US Army officer- the two biggest contributors to my transition to the private sector were education and networking. IPVM provides both of these- and we are excited to open the IPVM community to anyone beginning their transition from public service to the private sector.

Supporting Transition To The Private Sector

I learned through my experiences that making a successful transition to the private sector can be a daunting and challenging process. Translation of military skills and educational experiences are oftentimes misinterpreted and poorly understood by the private sector.

Similarly, law enforcement professionals possess deep, practical understandings of security, but sometimes lack experience with technical requirements, as well as strategic industry perspective.

In both instances, education and industry access are two of the most important aspects of bridging the perceived, or real, skill gaps many face when seeking employment in the private sector. We believe IPVM can help- which is why we are offering this special membership opportunity.

What It Means

Providing IPVM membership for a year and offering a course credit gives an opportunity for public servants to access the most comprehensive security industry resource available- at no cost.

Our hope is that by removing any financial obligation to access our membership, we will encourage transitioning military members and law enforcement professionals to join our ranks and learn from our community of seasoned professionals. And, ultimately, be better equipped in seeking advancement or employment in the security industry.

Who Qualifies?

Any recently separated (within two years of separation) military service member or law enforcement professional.

How to Sign Up?

Email info@ipvm.com or ryan@ipvm.com with the following information:

  • Name
  • E-mail address for account
  • Period of service
  • Rank or grade at discharge or end of public service
  • Last duty assignment or law enforcement assignment
  • A brief explanation of your service
  • Current job/position

After our team reviews the information, we will set up the membership and apply (1) course credit to the account.

Free IPVM Memberships For The Unemployed

IPVM also gives 3-month free memberships (regular price $99) for the unemployed, no questions asked. To get it, just contact us (or email info@ipvm.com), your request will be confidential.

Nice program IPVM. As a Veteran I am overwhelmed with emotion every Nov. 11th with the support this nation and community has for its veterans. I always make a mental note on these organizations and do my best to support them the rest of the 364 days of the year. Thank you IPVM.

It is really great of you guys to do this. I'm a law enforcement user, but I am fortunate enough to have my employer pay for my membership. I'd like to take a class or two some day, but I'm sure I can get those paid for too.

Keep being awesome, IPVM!
