(ISC)²® Launches Live OnLine Learning for CISSP® / CSSLP® / SSCP® Certification Courses in EMEA to Increase Learning Flexibility
London, UK, August 06, 2013 — (ISC)²® (“ISC-squared”), the world’s largest not-for-profit information security professional body and administrators of the CISSP®, SSCP® and CSSLP®, has introduced Live OnLine for the Official (ISC)² CBK® Training Seminars. Autumn registrations are now open for these real-time, virtual, instructor-led courses that offer candidates in EMEA an alternative to the traditional classroom-based training and greater learning flexibility.
Delivered in two and a half hour sessions twice a week over eight weeks, (ISC)² authorised instructors cover all the CBK® domains appropriate to a certification through Live OnLine. Candidates receive up-to-date course materials, including the (ISC)² official text books. Contributions from subject matter experts, an overview of the scope of the information security field and post-seminar self-assessment tests, are also available to candidates online. During the real-time, virtual sessions, candidates can pose questions to the instructor for immediate response and feedback, enjoying a similar experience to that of in-person training classes. Archived Live OnLine sessions can also easily be accessed by candidates for up to 60 days following the course with the ability to directly email the instructor with questions.
The 2013 (ISC)² Global Information Security Workforce Study, conducted by Frost & Sullivan in partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton, highlights that 64 percent of respondents in EMEA (60 percent in the UK) plan to acquire certifications in the next year, with the CISSP viewed as the top desired certification.
With the launch of Live OnLine, candidates looking to acquire the globally recognised CISSP or any other (ISC)² certification, can choose from traditional in-classroom training, a self-paced e-Learning course and now a virtual course with valuable real-time instructor interaction.
The first Live OnLine seminar, covering the CBK domains for the CISSP, began in July. Registrations are now open for the autumn schedule for CISSP, CSSLP and SSCP certifications, to run from 8 October to 28 November 2013.
“Our aim is to offer professionals a variety of options for quality learning via an educational model of their choosing to help them improve and maintain their skill levels in tune with evolving requirements,” said Faisal Malik, head of Business Development, (ISC)² EMEA. “Given the demanding work routines of security professionals, Live OnLine will take away the issues of cost and travel, offering candidates the convenience of virtual classroom sessions in local time, along with that all-important one-to-one interaction with the instructor.”
