The CISM designation is for Information Security professionals, managers and other assurance providers who have 3-5 years of front-line or management experience and responsibilities related to security.

Firebrand Training enrolment advisors interview all potential students regarding their work experience, degrees and certifications held, and personal fortitude. This screening process ensures a successful match between the customer and Firebrand Training toward accelerated training and certification.
