Firebrand’s CISSP bootcamp is ideal for experienced security professionals, including managers, auditors and consultants – or anyone aiming to achieve CISO roles.

The CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) is an established information security framework covering security terminology, principles and a library of cyber security topics. It is sometimes referred to as the CISSP syllabus.
Created by (ISC)2, the CBK is used to assess a student’s level of security knowledge when preparing for and sitting the CISSP exam.
CISSPs are subject matter experts (SMEs) who work within two or more of these eight domains and possess advanced knowledge, skills, and experience gained through certification.
The CISSP exam covers 8 domains in 2018 which are:
To achieve this certification, you must have at least five years of cumulative, paid and full-time work experience in two or more of the eight CISSP CBK domains.
However, if you don’t meet these requirements, you can get a one-year experience waiver with:
You may also opt to take and sit the CISSP exam without the required experience. If you do pass the exam without the prerequisite experience, you will become an Associate of (ISC)2. You’ll then have six years to earn the work experience required, at which point you will receive your CISSP certification.
The CISSP exam costs £560 in the UK.
The CISSP CAT exam duration is three hours. Exceptions can be provided to candidates with medical accommodations that are pre-approved by (ISC)2.
There is no minimum exam duration and students may proceed through the exam at their own pace.
The average annual salary for professionals holding the CISSP certification is £60,000 – according to data from ITJobsWatch.
On this accelerated course, you'll prepare for and sit your CISSP exam at the Firebrand Training Centre, covered by your Certification Guarantee:
Firebrand’s Training Centres are (ISC)²-authorized Pearson VUE Select Test Centers (PVTC Selects). This means our centres meet the high security requirements for the CISSP credential, and are equipped with enhanced biometric and surveillance technology.
Once you have successfully passed your certification exam, you'll receive your certificate and ID card. Upon receiving notification of your exam success, you will be required to subscribe to the (ISC)2 Code of Ethics and have your application endorsed before the credential can be awarded.
An endorsement form for this purpose must be completed and signed by an (ISC)2 certified professional who is an active member, and who can attest to your professional experience. You are required to become certified within nine months of the date of your exam.
If you do not become certified or an Associate of (ISC)2 within 9 months of the date of your exam, you will be required to retake the exam in order to become certified. It is possible for (ISC)2 to endorse you if you cannot find a certified individual to act as one.
The CISSP certification has annual and three-year CPE requirements. To maintain your certification you must:
Please note: Passing candidates may be randomly selected and audited by (ISC)2 Member Services prior to issuance of a certification. Attaining multiple certifications may result in a candidate being audited more than once. Firebrand Training will provide support for candidates that are audited.
