CISSP Prep Course

Course Description/Agenda

If you are ready to take your security career to the next level, our Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) exam preparation course will help get you there. Get instruction from our experts with real-world experience as you cover all the material you need to prepare for the (ISC)2 CISSP exam.

This course is your one source for exam preparation and includes:

  • Custom study guide containing summary charts, insightful data, and practice exams
  • A free copy of McGraw-Hill's CISSP Certification All-in-One Exam Guide, 5th Edition
  • CISSP Exam Cram Sheet
  • CISSP certification practice exam

All of these tools can help you prepare for the CISSP exam with confidence and allow for post-class study to pinpoint your weak areas. These tools also serve as a great addition to your reference library.


(ISC)2 requires exam candidates to have a minimum of five years of relevant work experience in two or more of the ten domains, four years of work experience with an applicable college degree, or a credential from the (ISC)2-approved list.

The CISSP certification requires successfully passing the CISSP exam (administered by (ISC)2) and having met the experience requirements. After class, we recommend self-study to sharpen your weak areas before taking the exam.
