You must pay the exam fee and sit the exam.
Once you have completed this succesfully; you have, up to, 9 months in order to pay your initial due fees.
If you do not pay the due fees, within 9 months, then you must sit the exam again.
Thanks for the reply. You mean to say i should first pay 599$ and sit for the CISSP exam. Pass the exam. Once i receive the acknowledgement copy and certificate. I should pay 35$ and become an associate of ISC2. Is the statement correct.
Passing the exam is the hard part. Once you have done that, you can work in the field to actually get certified. Make sure you keep good contacts with employers so you can prove you have been in the field.
I have the same question. The email I received said I have passed and need to move onto Endorsement, but at least two ISC2 webpages say Endorsement is not required. There seems to be some confusion on this matter.
https://www.isc2.org/Endorsement - "Please note: if you have passed the Certified in Cybersecurity exam, endorsement is not required."
Do I need to be endorsed for the Certified in Cybersecurity (CC)?
Once again, congratulations on your achievement! We cannot thank you enough for your participation in this historic pilot program, and your patience as we closed out the pilot in order to deliver your final results.
The endorsement option for CC will be available beginning this Thursday, September 1. Please access the online endorsement form then and let us know if you need any further help.
Please note that while you do not need to submit any work experience for the CC. The endorsement form is needed to show your commitment to abide by the (ISC)² Code of Ethics. In addition to completing the endorsement application, an annual maintenance fee is required. For CC members this is U.S. $50.
