    Are any schools are inclined to grant credit for professional credentials?

    Such as:

    CPP - Certified Protection Professional
    CPO - Certified Protection Officer
    CSS - Certified Security Supervisor
    CPI - Certified Professional Investigator

    There are some schools that do such things 'officially' and others do it informally. Heriot-Watt, for instance, has published a list of about 100 professional credentials for which they are willing to waive courses.

    One important factor is whether the credential has been examinated and evaluated by the American Council on Education, in their "Natinal Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs.
