The Certificate in Information Security Management Principles (CISMP) is an entry-level security course. It's similar to MTA Security and CompTIA Security+ certification courses - but vendor neutral and not technical.

There are no requirements for this course other than to be computer-literate.
The CISMP credential is widely recognised in the UK and is a good starting point for any professional within the security sector.
Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.
Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

"I had planned on attending the CISMP at the Firebrand training facility but due to the current restrictions the course was changed to online. I was apprehensive on how this would pan out and pleased to say I was pleasantly surprised.
The course was very well structured and the instructor very knowledgeable and engaging. The only downside is that I have to wait to sit the exam but feel confident that I will be successful.
Well done Firebrand in such challenging times!"
