Program of Distinction

IAHSS recognizes outstanding qualifying healthcare security and safety departments with the Program of Distinction. Hospitals / Facilities qualify for the Program of Distinction by achieving and maintaining a minimum level of certified officers, managers and directors within their security department. Participants are encouraged to obtain the highest level of certification possible. 


To qualify for the IAHSS Program of Distinction 70% of the security officers must hold a current Basic, Advanced or Supervisor certification. The director or administrative leader of the security department must also be a current Certified Healthcare Protection Administrator (CHPA). The IAHSS Program of Distinction is achieved by the healthcare security department, not the organization and is valid for two years at which time the department must renew.
