The (ISC)2 CISSP certification is recognised as the premier qualification for a senior career in information security. At first sight, preparing for the CISSP exam seems straightforward although many find the huge amount of information associated with the 10 CBK Domains and a 6-hour examination a daunting prospect. Our training team regularly receive calls from desperate individuals who feel they have left their preparation too late!
CISSP Exam Preparation training courses were conceived to meet this need, but with so many courses available on the market, how can CISSP exam candidates choose one that will actually help?
At IT Governance, we launched our innovative CISSP Accelerated Training Programme about 18 months ago. Although we were not first to market, we started by talking to our customers about their CISSP experiences and reviewing the existing CISSP exam preparation books and courses. This confirmed that candidates who attended a pre-exam training course were more successful, particularly if the course focused on improving knowledge in the CBK Domains that they were struggling to understand.
By listening to our customers, we developed a training programme that includes a Pre-course CISSP Knowledge Assessment that determines the strengths and weaknesses of the each candidate’s current knowledge. Our trainer then uses this assessment to prepare an individual Pre Course Study Plan which is incorporated into the subsequent 5-day classroom training session.
