The Columbia River Chapter wants to help you in your pursuit of these certifications!

The Facilities Physical Security Measures Guideline assists in the identification of physical security measures that can be applied at facilities to safeguard or protect an organization's assets-people, property, and information.

The emerging field of security convergence is also addressed. 

All attendees are encouraged to bring a copy of the ASIS Guideliens for Facility Physical Security Measures to review in the session. Free Downloads are avalible to ASIS International current members. 
 

Attendees will get a "Certificate of Attendance" for 3 hours of Continuing Education Credits for PSP or CPP certification.

Q3-2018 (July) Summer Party

In celebration of summer, the Columbia River ASIS Chapter invites you to participate in our upcoming networking event!

We will be hosting this event in two parts. First part from 4pm - 6pm at Threat Dynamics shooting range, followed by post-shooting "no host" food and drinks at Ancestry Brewing (6:15pm onward).  

Threat Dynamic Details: Patrons are no longer allowed to bring in and use their own ammo or target.  Also, everyone must wear “eyes and ears” on the range.  You can either bring your own or rent.  Personal handguns are allowed, and there is always the option of renting a handgun.

The cost for the Threat Dynamics portion of this event will be $25 and includes: lane rental (max 3 people per lane), one target per lane, one 9mm handgun per lane, and 25 rounds of ammo per person. Please confirm your interest and/or participation by emailing secretary@crasisonline.org.

The cost DOES NOT include "eyes and ears", as a number of people have expressed that they own this themselves. If you do not, you can rent these for $5 from Threat Dynamics. You will have the option to purchase additional ammo, other handgun rentals, and other targets if you prefer your own. All details are available on the Threat Dynamics website.

If you cannot or do not want to participate in the Threat Dynamics portion of this summer party, please feel free to join us at Ancestry Brewing afterwards. There will be no charge for this through CRASIS, though you will need to cover any food or beverages on your own. Please confirm your interest and/or participation by emailing secretary@crasisonline.org.
