CISSP Study Session

About the Class: The 13 week study group is an excellent opportunity to aid in preparation for the rigorous CISSP exam offered by ISC2 at a manageable pace, and low cost.  The study group meets for two and half hours a session for 13 sessions and is aimed at reviewing the 8 Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) topics that are tested on the CISSP exam. This is an excellent opportunity to gauge your knowledge and to prepare for the CISSP exam.  This study group offers over 32 1/2 hours of instruction and is an excellent value when compared to a 40-hour course priced many times more.

Class size is limited to 30 students, therefore, the first 30 to send a registration form and make payment will be guaranteed a seat in the group. Participation is competitive. The study group is facilitated by ISSA-HR members who are CISSPs, have proven experience in the domain they are facilitating, and are experienced public speakers.

Earning the CISSP credential meets the IAM and IAT level III certification requirement mandated by the DoD 8570 instruction.

Feel free to share this to anyone you feel might benefit from this study group.

Note: The cost of the Study Group does not include the cost of the CISSP exam – info can be found at: No text books are provided.  Purchasing a CISSP study guide is strongly recommended.  Study Group presentations and supplemental study material will be made available to each participant on CD.
