We encourage you to use the unlimited practice exams and exam prep guide to prepare yourself for the certification exam.

If you do not achieve the passing score after two attempts you will need to purchase a new exam attempt and there may be a waiting period before you can retake the Certified Information Systems Security Officer exam again.

What Learning Materials Come
With the Training?

1.  Ebook/s –  These online flip books have been built by industry and subject matter experts to deliver you a dynamic learning experience.  Each chapter includes text as well as infographics for visual learners.  Plus there is plenty of space on each page for notes.

2.  Videos – The videos coincide with the books with a recorded instructor going through each page and adding descriptions, life experiences, and conversational-style delivery for auditory learners.

3. Exam Prep Guide – Much like an ATC or SAT prep guide, the prep guide will briefly cover all topics and areas you should be prepared to be questioned in during the certification exam.

4.  Practice Exam – Unlimited practice exams simulate the exam environment, but beware!  The questions on the exam are NOT the same as in the exam simulator.  Often, the practice exam questions are a bit easier.  A good score on the practice exam will not guarantee a good score on the certification exam.

5.  Certification Exam – A multiple choice test

6.  Second Chance Exam – Should you not achieve the 70% score needed for certification on your first attempt.
