Failure to meet the CPE credit requirements may result in suspension and loss of the certification. The suspension will only be lifted after the minimum annual CPE credits are met.

CPE credits are calculated as per activity, with one hour of CPE credit typically earned for every one hour spent in any related educational activity. However, several activities may yield more credits due to the depth of study involved or the level of commitment required. Note that you typically cannot earn CPE credits through normal daily job activities.

There are two types of CISSP exams -  Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) and linear, fixed-form exams.

(ISC)² has implemented CAT for all English CISSP exams globally. This new format, based on the same exam content outline as the previous linear, fixed-form exam, offers a more accurate and efficient evaluation of your competency. With CISSP-CAT, you can demonstrate your knowledge by answering fewer items and completing the exam in half the time.

Here are a few key aspects of the CISSP-CAT exam pattern:

  • The CISSP exam uses Computerized Adaptive Testing for all English exams, while exams in all other languages are administered as linear, fixed-form exams.
  • In a CISSP-CAT exam, you must view at least 100 questions and at most 150 questions in a three-hour period (180 minutes). Out of the first 100 questions that you attempt, only 75 questions are marked and contribute to your final score. The non-graded 25 questions are interspersed among the 100 questions and are used to evaluate future test questions.
  • As you answer questions beyond the 100th question, previous questions start getting discarded and do not contribute to your final score. The assessment is based only on the last 75 questions that are graded out of 100.
  • When you arrive at the 100th question, the testing system measures your potential for passing the exam. If it estimates that your potential to pass is at least 95%, the test ends with a PASS score. If the system estimates your potential to fail is 95% or more, the test ends with a FAIL score. If the system cannot determine the likelihood of passing or failure by the time it reaches 100 questions, it evaluates again till it reaches question 150
  • The passing grade is 700 out of 1000 points, which some experts equate to about 70% in every domain.
  • There is no mention of negative marking, and (ISC)² does not report to candidates the number of questions they answered correctly or the overall percentage of questions they answered correctly.

The CISSP exam is conducted through Pearson VUE, an authorized test delivery provider for (ISC)². Pearson VUE is responsible for administering the CISSP exam on behalf of (ISC)², ensuring a standardized and secure testing environment for candidates. As an authorized partner, Pearson VUE follows the guidelines and procedures set by (ISC)² to facilitate the CISSP examination process.

Yes, Pearson VUE offers the option to take the CISSP exam online. This online exam format provides convenience and flexibility for candidates to take the CISSP exam remotely from their own location. It allows individuals to schedule and take the exam at a time and place that is convenient for them, provided they meet the necessary technical requirements and follow the guidelines set by (ISC)² and Pearson VUE for online proctoring.

If, unfortunately, you do not pass the CISSP certification exam, you have the opportunity to retake the exam after a waiting period of 30 days. This allows you time to review your performance, identify areas of improvement, and further prepare for the exam. It's important to use this time effectively to enhance your knowledge and address any gaps in your understanding.

After the 30-day waiting period, you can schedule a retake of the CISSP exam and have another chance to achieve a passing score.

The time required to study for the CISSP exam can vary depending on several factors. Once you have the prerequisite 5 years of working experience, the actual duration of the CISSP exam prep can be influenced by individual factors, such as how quickly you grasp the concepts, what resources you refer to, how well you practice for the exam, and your overall study approach. 

Our course is designed to support you throughout your CISSP certification journey, offering comprehensive assistance, guidance, and resources to ensure your exam success. Our comprehensive hands-on course offers a structured learning schedule, dedicated study time, and in-depth coverage of the eight CISSP exam domains. Expert instructors provide valuable insights and real-world examples to enhance your understanding, preparing you to clear your exam with confidence.

Everything was well organized. I would definitely refer their courses to my peers as well. The customer support was very interactive. As a small suggestion to the trainer, it will be better if we have discussions in the end like Q&A sessions.
