(ISC)2 National Organization to Provide CISSP Training in Twin Cities

(ISC)2 have upcoming classes in Minneapolis the weeks of January 9th and February 20th; these are the only times that they will be offered to the general public in the Twin Cities next year!  To see a schedule of their upcoming classroom-based CISSP training seminars, visit http://tinyurl.com/oulhbsr.  Please note: CISSP training seminars we co-run with Training Camp are for the five-day training seminar OR the six-day boot camp; you can register for either format of training.

The promotional cost* for the five-day format of the classroom-based training seminar on its own is $2,195.00 (early registration rate is normally $2,495.00).  Our five-day onsite CISSP CBK training seminars run from Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm with a break for lunch.  Candidates who attend the five-day format of training provide their own meals and sit for the exam separately.  The CISSP exam takes place at Pearson Vue regularly so you can choose to schedule it on a date and at a location that’s convenient for you.  Visit http://www.pearsonvue.com/isc2/ to register an account and/or to register for an exam.

The six-day boot camp includes training Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until about 7:00 pm, a Saturday morning class from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm, and the exam on Saturday afternoon (waitlist, limited availability for the exam onsite; most students sit for the exam separately at Pearson Vue).  The promotional price* of the boot camp is $3,595.00.  Continental breakfast and lunch is provided.  Additionally, there is an option for hotel accommodations; please let me know if you need pricing information.

Official (ISC)2 Training Seminars are conducted only by (ISC)2 certified instructors, each of whom is up-to-date on the latest information security-related developments, is an expert in the specific domains, and has completed an extensive certification process by (ISC)2.  Included with the training seminar is the Official (ISC)2 CISSP Training Seminar Student Handbook which you’ll use to follow along with the class.  Also included with registration is our Education Guarantee.  If candidates do not pass the (ISC)2 certification exam on their first attempt after attending our training seminar, the candidate can attend a second CBK training seminar at no additional cost (within one year from the end of training seminar).  The Education Guarantee covers the cost of a second five-day onsite or Live Online CBK training seminar only.

When you are ready to move forward and register for the training seminar or boot camp, please contact Joel Goldstein directly at 703-637-4431.  (ISC)2 accepts three forms of payment – credit card, check, or wire transfer.  Joel can process your credit card payment and registration over the phone.  If you would like to pay via check or wire transfer, please let Joel know and he will provide payment instructions.
