Free IPVM For Recently Separated Military Members and Law Enforcement ProfessionalsBy Donald Maye, Published Nov 10, 2020, 11:35am EST
IPVM is proud to announce a unique membership offer for recently separated military members and law enforcement professionals.
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.
Any recently separated (within two years of separation) military service member or law enforcement professional.
