two professional certification programs both recognized by
federal government*. For detailed
information on both the OAP and OCP see the Professionalism/Certifications portions of

reciprocal agreements with the Interagency OPSEC Support
Staff and their certification program.)
OPSEC Certified Professional© OPS established the OPSEC Certified Professional (OCP©) program to recognize individuals who meet the highest standards of the OPSEC profession. A network of OCP mentors is available to guide OCP candidates through the process of certification. Those who meet the criteria and maintain their certification are authorized to annotate “OCP” after their name.
OPSEC Associate Professional© In 2003, the Society created the OPSEC Associate Professional (OAP©) level of recognition for those members who did not meet the OCP certification standard, but had met specific levels of experiences and formal education in the OPSEC discipline. The OAP was created to stimulate pursuit of the OCP certification
