What I need to understand is whether you are a certified institution to deliver the ASIS CPP course and whether you are accepted by ASIS to provide the course and will be approved and authenticated by ASIS?

As far as we can know ASIS does not certify any institute for CPP training. ASIS has a program called “ASIS Preferred CPE Provider”, which is available for businesses on annual membership fee-based. We have not yet opted for that as it is not for CPP training courses. Many security training companies use that as ASIS endorsement. Logically, ASIS preferred CPE (Continuous Professional Education) provider is meant for recertification credits. Perhaps that might have created confusion. Hope this clarifies.
