(ISC)2 certification exams are as challenging as they are rewarding. Being fully prepared gives you confidence on exam day. Our goal is to help you pass it on the first try.
Why We Partner with (ISC)2
An organization specializing in information systems security, security training and certification are (ISC)2’s sweet spots. Created in 1988, the (ISC)2 Consortium was formed by a group of security organizations intent on creating an entity offering a vendor-neutral, standardized certification program to validate security professionals’ competence.
(ISC)2 is known for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification. However, it also offers numerous other certifications that are growing in popularity and employer desirability:
- Certified Authorization Professional (CAP)
- Certified Cyber Forensic Professional (CCFPSM)
- Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP)
- Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP)
- Information Systems Security Engineering Professional (CISSP-ISSEP)
- Information Systems Security Management Professional (CISSP-ISSMP)
A non-profit organization, (ISC)2 has become the largest international association for information security. Its authorized providers are vetted to maintain high training standards.
Over the intervening years, (ISC)2 security training and certifications have become industry standard. We include them in our offerings because we know their certifications have a high impact on tech professionals’ skillset, credibility, and earning potential.
4 Key Reasons to Choose Us as Your CISSP Learning Partner
Training providers are a dime a dozen it seems. Sorting through them to find your best fit can be overwhelming. And who has the time?!
Here are four key reasons to choose CCS Learning Academy:
01: An Exam Voucher is Included
You need an exam voucher to sit for the CISSP exam. Not all training providers include this with their learning package. We do.
02: Access to Current Training Materials
The cybersecurity landscape changes fast. (ISC)2 regularly updates their certification training materials to reflect new developments and trends. As an official provider, we have access to the most recent version. For certifications that are updated monthly, like the CISSP, this is particularly important.
03: Our Instructors are (ISC)2 Certified
(ISC)2 vets instructors as well as training providers. This is something to check for as you research training options. All our (ISC)2 instructors are vetted and trained by (ISC)2. They’re also working professionals who bring real-world scenarios and knowledge to the classroom. You learn from motivated, talented professionals who love to teach.
04: We Offer Multiple Learning Modalities
We know every situation is different and that learning styles are unique. We make sure you have the tools needed to earn your (ISC)2 certification in the format that’s best for you.
We offer several ways to prepare for the (ISC)2 exam, such as our live, online CISSP certification preparation course and our e-learning bundle. Our training professionals work with you to design the solution that fits your needs and goals.
Bonus Tip: Look Beyond the Price Tag and the Packaging
When it comes to choosing a training provider, you need to look beyond the flashy website and appealing price tags. Most of us are watching our budgets making those smaller price tags attractive. Beware!
Unofficial courses tend to be cheaper and easier to attend. However, they don’t offer the same level of quality and reliability that an official course does. Take the time to research your training provider:
- Are they an (ISC)2 certified training partner?
- Are their instructors (ISC)2 certified?
- What does your tuition fee include? An exam voucher?
- Are their materials up-to-date?
- What happens if you need to retake the exam?
Official courses, on the other hand, are generally more expensive and have stricter entry requirements. Don’t let this deter you! Earning the CISSP certification is a huge boost to your resume. It’s worth the extra effort to find a reputable preparation course.
