Example of the “surveillance, guarding” sector:
Training organizations recognized by the CNAPS, provide the Title Professional Security and Private Security Officer (TP A2SP) and the Certificate of Professional Qualification of Prevention and Security Agent (CQP APS). To enroll in a training center, such as Avancia Formation, it is essential to have the prior authorization to enter training issued by the CNAPS.
