Excuse me for this post, because I know this topic has been discussed many times, but I couldn't find a clear conclusion anywhere.
The thing is that after passed CISSP examination a couple weeks ago, I sent my endorsement application, putting as endorser a instructor from the official training course that I attended, but even though he said that would be glad to be my endorser I feel a bit ignored, since it has pasted already about 10 days but in my endorsement platform application still appears "You submitted your application on 09/02/2019. Your application is currently with xxxxxx for review."
I have detailed documentation about all my previous positions with the tasks performed (I have been collecting them carefully along the years, since I was considering applying for Australia or Canada skilled visa at some point of my life). Also I have my Computing Engineering and Master in ICT Security awards.
Would you recommend me edit the "waiting" endorsement and start again choosing the option of "Request (ISC)² to endorse you."? I wonder which is the advantage of obtaining the endorsement from another person. I have been searching on the Internet and specially in this forum, but there are no evidences that the processing time is shorter if the endorsement is processed with a endorser, compared with doing it direct with ISC2.
Once the endorser (ISC2 or a member) has provided their endorsement of your application the time it then takes for the application to be approved will be no different.
I guess the main difference in time frame comes prior to the endorsement of your application being provided. ISC2 will provide their endorsement to a known schedule, whereas with a member endorsement you are at the mercy of your endorser's schedule.
I'd suggest you give your endorser a nudge. They may have overlooked the email they would have been sent. It's also not unknown for emails from ISC2 to be delayed or get lost.
