The International Ship and Port-Facility Security (ISPS) Code specifies that the Port Facility Security Officer (PFSO) is responsible for the development, implementation, revision, and maintenance of the Port Facility Security Plan (PFSP).
The PFSP outlines the required measures to prevent the unauthorized access of people, weapons and contraband into port, and provide for a safe and sterile working environment for international shipping operators.
Plymouth University’s PFSO course follows the framework of the ISPS Code, and is approved by the Department for Transport. On completion of this course students will be able to:

Plymouth University’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses at the Dartmouth Centre for Sea Power and Strategy are unique because they are delivered by expert practitioner trainers as well as staff from the University.
