Who should attend

If you plan to build a career in information security CISSP is the gold standard certification to attain.

  • The course can run in two formats, the standard public event or as a boot camp. The boot camp allows the customer to specify longer working hours which allows a deeper and more detailed discussion of the technologies involved.
  • A public event would typically run 9.30 till 5 pm.
  • Boot camps can run 9 am to 5.30 pm or 9 am to 8 pm, depending on your preference.
  • A boot camp also traditionally finishes with a test prep exam, which takes place after lunch on the last day. This allows the delegates to approach the topics covered in a question and answer format, and then discuss their answers with the trainer and class.


Delegates should have experience in at least two of the domains in the (CBK), for 5 years or more (4 years if they have achieved relevant industry or degree level certifications) to achieve full certification. Associate status can be achieved without the full 4/5 years experience; full certification will be assigned when the correct amount of experience is obtained.

We recommend delegates have some knowledge of all CBK domains and are encouraged to read one or two of the books on the Reading List at ISC2.org. You will be provided with a CISSP guide book as pre-reading We recommend that work completed in the classroom is complemented by extra reading to ensure success in the exam. The amount of extra reading required will depend on the amount of experience the delegate has. The 'mile wide, inch deep' description indicates the challenge to most delegates, not all will have 'hands on' experience spanning all 8 domains of the CBK.

Pre-course reading:

Delegates will be provided with pre-course reading prior to attending the course. The success on the course will be enhanced by close attention to the pre-reading materials. It is recommended that candidates spend 10 hours working through the pre-reading.
