I am wondering does the years of experience requirement count by the exact months?
I started working in the cyber security industry in Feb 2018, and before that I had a master degree in information security. So technically I have 3 years and 7 months of full-time work experience, plus 1 year education experience waiver as for now.
Given that I passed the exam in August 2021, can I start the endorsement now? If not, should I wait for Feb 2022 to start endorsement, since I have 9 months of time before my exam result expires? To me it doesn't seem worthy to apply for Associate status first and wait another year for full certification, or maybe I am wrong.
