After taking the Basic CPTED class live taught by Art, I was looking forward to taking the Advanced class. Due to the pandemic, the organization that I work for will not allow any outside training. I was pleased that NICP offered an online Advanced course so that I could still get the training. I initially thought I would be missing out on the live experience of the class but the format in which this online course was laid out, was pretty impressive. It was challenging and interactive. Communication was great. I highly recommend this online course to others that cannot attend a live class at the moment.
