The world’s first certified professional development programme for individuals in nuclear security management.

Helping licensees assess the maturity of their security programme and measure their security culture effectiveness.
We offer two streams of certification, the Certified Nuclear Security Professional programme and the Certified Radioactive Source Security Professional programme.
Our Certified Nuclear Security Professional (CNSP) programme consists of a Foundation Module plus eight electives. All participants must first enrol in the Foundation Module and can then select the elective of their choice.
Our Certified Radioactive Source Security Professional (CRSP) programme consists of a single module. Due to the targeted nature of the programme, it does not require participants to enrol in the Foundation Module.
All modules use a problem-based approach to learning that is practitioner-focused, hands-on, cross-functional and immediately useful. Our goal is to ensure that the modules tell a compelling, well-researched story that speaks to an educated audience but avoids stilted bureaucratic or academic language. We also incorporate numerous case studies, exercises and questions for reflection to stimulate thinking and increase learning.
Every certification programme requires approximately 40 hours of study and can be completed entirely online. Traditional hardcopy textbooks are also provided for each course. No prior knowledge or prerequisites are required to sign up for the programme except for a working knowledge of English. (Note that the Foundation Module, Transport Security Management elective and Radioactive Source Security Management Standalone Module are also available in Spanish.)View All Modules

Once participants complete a module, they sit for an exam. Those who successfully pass the examinations for both the Foundation Module and the elective module become WINS Certified Nuclear Security Professionals (CNSPs) and those who pass the Radioactive Source Security Management standalone module become Certified Radioactive Source Security Professionals (CRSPs).
They also receive access to the WINS Academy Alumni Network, which enables them to benefit from continued professional development.
All of our certification exams are delivered in partnership with Pearson VUE. As the world’s largest testing and assessment provider, Pearson provides over 5,600 accrediting test centres in 190 countries around the world.Find A Test Centre
