To be eligible to get your certification, you must complete two processes:


The eligibility requirements to sit for the examination are completely separate from the eligibility requirements necessary to be certified.

To sit the exam, you must:

  • Prove that you possess a minimum of five years of professional experience in the information security field (or four years plus a college degree)
  • Complete the Candidate Agreement, confirming the above experience, and legally committing to the Code of Ethics
  • Successfully answer four questions regarding criminal history and related background


To be issued a certificate, you must:

  • Pass the exam with a scaled score of 700 points or greater
  • Submit a completed Endorsement Form
  • (If randomly selected) successfully pass an audit of your professional experience

What is Endorsement?

Once you have been notified of passing the examination, you will be required to have your application endorsed by a Certified Information Systems Security Professional before the credential can be awarded. If none can be found, another qualified professional with knowledge of information systems or an officer of the candidates corporation can be used to validate your professional experience.

Your endorser will confirm your professional experience is true to the best of their knowledge, and that you are in good standing within the information security industry.

Upon receipt of the Endorsement Form and barring a random audit of your professional experience, the credential should be awarded within one business day, with a formal notification sent via e-mail.

What is the audit?

Some candidates who pass the exam and submit endorsements will be randomly subjected to audit, and required to submit a CV for formal review and investigation.

If audited (subject to results), the credential will be awarded within seven business days and notification sent via e-mail. Naturally, there may be some delays due to mail service or the number of forms received. Also, audits may require additional time for verifying information and/or contacting references.

Unsure whether you meet the prerequisites?

Don’t worry - we’ll discuss your technical background, experience and qualifications to determine whether this accelerated course suits you.

Just call us on 080 80 800 888 and speak to one of our enrolment consultants.

Firebrand is an immersive environment and requires commitment. Some prerequisites are simply guidelines; you may find your unique experience, attitude and determination enables you to succeed on your accelerated course.
