SSCP (Systems Security Certified Practitioner) Certification

The SSCP certification is designed as a professional development course for those with a minimum of five years paid work experience in one of the six cloud-based domains identified by (ISC)ВІ standards. The (ISC)2 SSCP exam is a vendor-neutral, globally recognized certification that adds an independent endorsement of IT security skills and acumen.

The unique course design provides attendees with a combination of instructor-led sessions, hands-on learning opportunities, and practical applications that reinforce best practices in information technology system security principles.

During the three-week course, students engage with peers and professors on collaborative projects that simulate real-world events, as well as access self-guided online learning modules and lectures.

The course uses interactive activities, instructor supervision and feedback, online learning opportunities, and on-campus classroom computer training in conjunction with workshop-oriented sessions to ensure experienced information technology professionals are fully prepared to sit for the (ISC)2 SSCP exam
