The Complete CPTED Certificate Training is a three-day course that focuses on understanding the relationship between the physical environment and criminal opportunities. The first training program will be offered virtually Feb. 15-17, 2021 via Zoom.

Participants will be introduced to theories on crimes, offender’s decision-making process in relation to the physical environment and principals of CPTED.

Instruction will be a combination of lectures, in-class exercises/assessments and a field assessment. Lectures will cover the following topics:
