Have the NICP CPTED Training Courses Come To You!

At NICP, Inc. we understand the difficulty many organizations have in sending their personnel to distant locations for training. Many organizations cannot spare the personnel, needed travel time, and cost. That is why we provide CPTED training at your location. Our Instructors will travel to your location to conduct your CPTED training class.

The courses include:

  • A 5 Day (40 hour) Basic CPTED course covers an Introduction to CPTED, CPTED Strategies and Concepts, Lighting, Fencing, Landscaping, Planning & Zoning, Overlay Districts, and Site Plan Review & Report Writing. Practical exercises include a Neighborhood Design Charrette, Site Plan Review, and a CPTED Field Assessment with a team Presentation. At the end of the course the participants take the first of two exams required for earning the CPD. The cost of the 40-hour course is for up to 50 participants. The hosting agency provides the sites for the students to conduct the assessments. This course is the initial class needed to earn the NICP’s CPTED Professional Designation (CPD). Here is the link to our web page that provides more information about the CPD.
