Whilst it is not military training it is regimented enough to provide you with the best possible out come."

"Firebrand is a fantastic provider of courses that gives relevant, effective training. On the CISSP Boot Camp, the instructors' experience was evident throughout and she used it to pass her knowledge on to us through relevant examples. If there was a misunderstanding, it was explained in another way until it was clear. The amount of information that was covered made me feel confident to take the CISSP the end of the week.

The facilitators were also key in facilitating learning by taking care of any issues that students had - regardless of the size."

The goal of this seven-day accelerated course is to provide information security professionals a fully-immersed, zero-distraction, all-inclusive CISSP training and certification experience. Our bootcamp encompasses the (ISC)2 CBK Review Seminar, value-added instruction, on-site examination delivery, meals, and accommodation.
Firebrand Training has been named as “Highest Performing Affiliate of the Year – EMEA” by (ISC)2. The major security association helps companies recognise organisations and individuals who are knowledgeable in security through all (ISC)2 certifications.
Firebrand Training is an Authorized Provider of (ISC)2 certifications. W. Hord Tipton, Executive Director of (ISC)2, stated: “This award represents Firebrand as the top performer for (ISC)2...for the EMEA region.”
Known as the Certified Information Systems Security Professional, the CISSP certification is governed by the International Information Systems Security Certifications Consortium (ISC)2 and has gained importance as a key component in the selection process for management-level information security positions.
The key advantage of authorized (ISC)2 Institute Training is fundamental: The institute's goal is to provide an extensive overview of the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK), the compendium of information security practices and standards compiled and continually updated by (ISC)2 and used as the basis for the exam.
The benefits listed below are but a few of the advantages you can receive when doing business with an (ISC)2 host partner. Only authorized host partners:
Become an (ISC)² member and you’ll have access to a wide range of highly valuable benefits and resources that can help further your knowledge. This includes being connected to a global network of 120,000+ certified professionals, security conference discounts and free events and access to industry leading research such as the (ISC)² Journal and Global Information Security Workforce Study.
To become a member you’ll need to earn one of (ISC)²’s gold standard certifications. If you wish to find out more, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Information security professionals invest substantially in information assets, including technology, architecture and process. But how can protection of these assets be ensured? Only through the strengths of the professionals in charge.
Industry standards, ethics and certification of IS professionals and practitioners becomes critical to ensuring a higher standard for security is achieved. (ISC)2, as the only not-for-profit consortium charged with maintaining, administering and certifying IS professionals in the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK), is the premier resource for IS professionals worldwide.
Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.
Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.
This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a Certification Guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
The CISSP domains are drawn from various information security topics within the (ISC)² CBK. The CISSP CBK consists of the following 8 domains:
The CISSP Certification exam consists of 250 multiple-choice questions with four (4) choices each. You have up to 6 hours to complete the examination.
You'll be tested on the Eight CISSP information systems security test domains relating to the Common Body of Knowledge:
Upon successfully passing your CISSP certification exam, you'll receive your certificate and ID card. You are also eligible to be listed in the CISSP Directory, can elect to participate in the Speakers' Bureau, can serve on (ISC)2 committees and can participate in annual elections.
You must recertify every 3 years, with ongoing requirements for maintaining your credentials in good standing. This is achieved through continuing professional education (CPE) and the earning of 120 CPE credits every three years. More on qualifying for credits will be available upon certification.
This accelerated course encompasses the (ISC)2 CBK Review Seminar, value-added instruction, on-site examination delivery, meals and accommodation. We attend to every detail so our students can focus solely on their studies and certification goals.
The official (ISC)2 five-day review course provides information security professionals, namely Network Administrators and Executive Managers, the information required to demonstrate a mastery of information security - and ultimately pass the Certified Information Systems Security Professional exam.
The examinations are delivered at our site - with (ISC)2 approval - not at 'local' testing centres that are subject to seat availability.
Firebrand Training utilises official (ISC)2 copyrighted training materials for the program delivery. These materials have been derived from extensive work from (ISC)2 Instructors, and Subject Matter Experts in developing material and presentation.
Firebrand Training includes the official (ISC)2 practice exam that covers 100 sample questions which are representative of the actual examination questions. In addition, students receive an individualized practice exam evaluation.

You can choose to download the courseware to your own device, or borrow one of ours.
Considering a Microsoft course? Always have the most up-to-date Microsoft digital courseware with ‘Fresh Editions’. This gives you access to all versions of digital courseware – you’ll receive updates and revisions of your textbook, at no charge, for the life of that course.
Should a student complete a Firebrand Training Program without having successfully passed all vendor examinations, the student may re-attend that program for a period of one year. Students will only be responsible for accommodations and vendor exam fees.
To attain your CISSP certification, you must complete the follow process:
You must have a minimum of 5 years cumulative paid full-time work experience in 2 or more of the 8 domains of the CISSP CBK. Earning a 4-year college degree or regional equivalent or an additional credential from the (ISC)²s approved list will waive 1 year of the required experience. Only a 1 year experience exemption is granted for education.
If you do not have the required experience, you may still sit for the exam and become an Associate of (ISC)² until you have gained the required experience.
You can pass the CISSP examination by achieving a scaled score of 700 points or greater.
Upon receiving notification of exam success, you will be required to subscribe to the (ISC)² Code of Ethics and have your application endorsed before the credential can be awarded. An endorsement form for this purpose must be completed and signed by an (ISC)² certified professional who is an active member, and who is able to attest to your professional experience.
With the endorsement time limit, you are required to become certified within nine months of the date of your exam or become an Associate of (ISC)². If you do not become certified or an Associate of (ISC)² within 9 months of the date of your exam, you will be required to retake the exam in order to become certified. It is possible for (ISC)² to endorse you if you cannot find a certified individual to act as one.
Upon achieving your CISSP credential, recertification is required every 3 years by meeting all renewal requirements:
If you wish to find out more, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Passing candidates will be randomly selected and audited by (ISC)² Member Services prior to issuance of any certificate. Multiple certifications may result in a candidate being audited more than once.
Don’t worry - we’ll discuss your technical background, experience and qualifications to determine whether this accelerated course suits you.
Just call us on +44 207 907 1120 and speak to one of our enrolment consultants.
