Firebrand Training has been named as “Highest Performing Affiliate of the Year – EMEA” by (ISC)2. The major security association helps companies recognise organisations and individuals who are knowledgeable in security through all (ISC)2 certifications.
Firebrand Training is an Authorized Provider of (ISC)2 certifications. W. Hord Tipton, Executive Director of (ISC)2, stated: “This award represents Firebrand as the top performer for (ISC)2...for the EMEA region.”
The goal of this seven-day accelerated course is to provide information security professionals a fully-immersed, zero-distraction, all-inclusive CISSP training and certification experience. Our bootcamp encompasses the (ISC)2 CBK Review Seminar, value-added instruction, on-site examination delivery, meals, and accommodation.
The CISSP certification is governed by the International Information Systems Security Certifications Consortium (ISC)2 and has gained importance as a key component in the selection process for management-level information security positions.
The key advantage of authorized (ISC)2 Institute Training is fundamental: The institute's goal is to provide an extensive overview of the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK), the compendium of information security practices and standards compiled and continually updated by (ISC)2 and used as the basis for the exam.
The benefits listed below are but a few of the advantages you can receive when doing business with an (ISC)2 host partner. Only authorized host partners:
Information security professionals invest substantially in information assets, including technology, architecture and process. But how can protection of these assets be ensured? Only through the strengths of the professionals in charge.
Industry standards, ethics and certification of IS professionals and practitioners becomes critical to ensuring a higher standard for security is achieved. (ISC)2, as the only not-for-profit consortium charged with maintaining, administering and certifying IS professionals in the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK), is the premier resource for IS professionals worldwide.
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.
This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.

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.
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.
