Why is CISSP important?

Awarded by (ISC)2, CISSP has been compared to a master’s degree in IT security and is globally accepted as the qualification of choice for senior cybersecurity consultants, managers, and directors.

Achieving CISSP will help you gain the knowledge to enhance your job performance and improve your contribution to your organization. Many government and regulatory bodies require CISSP certification for certain positions.

Earning the CISSP qualification is an important step in developing a career as a senior information or cybersecurity manager/director and opens the door to roles with a higher salary and enhanced job prospects.

CISSP was one of the top-paying IT certifications in the North America ($154,186) region in 2022. (Global Knowledge IT Skills & Salary Report 2022)

Our unique 13-week CISSP Blended Online Training Course

Our blended training course is designed to deliver learning that is achievable and sustainable in an extremely busy work and life schedule. Instead of typical block classroom training, this course uses a ‘flipped classroom,’ which combines guided digital content with instructor-led sessions so you have more time to absorb and understand each of the CISSP knowledge domains.

We have combined instructor-led, digital content and support features to create the ultimate truly blended learning experience. We start with an assessment of your knowledge and a one-on-one meeting with our expert instructor to develop your personal learning plan.

You will be introduced to a topic or subject by an instructor, then asked to study the associated digital content, which can be accessed anywhere from any device. A subsequent review will then be completed in the instructor-led training session to summarize the key content and provide further advice on additional study resources.

We ask you to commit to a minimum of one hour of learning per day for 13 weeks. Combined with 20 hours of instructor-led sessions, this program contains a minimum of 100 hours of learning, ensuring you have the best chance of passing.

This blended course includes everything you need to confidently pass the CISSP exam, embed the learning, and build a more effective understanding of information and cybersecurity management.

What is blended learning?

Blended training offers learners and instructors an improved educational experience by combining instructor-led sessions, guided digital content, mentoring, tools, resources, and applications.

It is shown to expand reach, increase engagement, provide useful resources, facilitate collaboration, and simplify assessment. This helps learners to involve more senses during the learning process and provides more tools to help with the studies.

Blended learning is best delivered in a ‘learn over time’ program, allowing delegates to take learning one step at a time, with a view to mastery of each subject while accommodating the challenges of a busy work and home life.

Ultimately, blended learning means you will pass CISSP easily and with less stress than self-studying or attending a traditional ‘cram and go’ CISSP boot camp.

Why choose blended learning?

 Tailored, mastery-based learning

Focus on what you need to study, and guided by an expert, work until you master the subject.

 Better learning outcomes

The blended delivery model improves learning outcomes by embedding the required knowledge and developing successful exam techniques and skills. This results in higher first-time pass rates compared to traditional ‘cram-and-go’ learning.

 Work around lifestyle challenges

A manageable minimum of one 1 hour of learning per day over 13 weeks allows you to fit your study around work and home commitments.

 Global networking and peer support

Attend instructor-led sessions with learners from around the world. Learn from other learners’ industries and experiences, build connections, and share best practices.

 A more manageable program

Study using instructor-led guidance and digital resources in a relaxed and low-stress learning program.
