Holding multiple ISC2 certifications - AMFs

hello community,

Does anybody know how much would I need to pay if I hold 2 ISC2 certifications? I currently hold the CISSP and recently passed my CCSP, so, should I next year pay $185?

yes, they are all independent as far as AMFs are concerned.

Re: Holding multiple ISC2 certifications - AMFs

Good afternoon,

 

I currently do not hold multiple certs from ISC2, but I plan to in the future. If my research is correct, the CPE Portal will update when you have multiple certifications, which will then display how many CPEs you need per cert. Also, when you go to pay your Annual Maintenance Fees(AMF), the portal will display which certifications you want to pay for. For example, when I go to pay my AMFs, it gives me options to pay for CISSP 2018, CISSP 2019, and CISSP2020. I can only image that your AMF portal will look similar with the added options of "CCSP 2019, CCSP 2020, and CCSP 2021." Like I said, I do not know first hand, but I would image this is the way it works. So yes, I would look forward to paying your CISSP AMF + your CCSP AMF = TotalAMF.

@OMonge Congratulations on recently passing the CCSP! To confirm, each certification has its own AMF. The CISSP is $85.00 and the CCSP is $100.00, so you will be paying $185.00 total each year. Please keep in mind, each certification has a different cycle, so the due dates will be different.

I'm in the same boat, and that's how it looks to me ...so far. I also hold 3 ISACA certs, but they cut you a deal.

If enough people asked, for a discount for multiple AMF's, then hopefully the board will take heed?

 

What is the old adage, "If you don't ask, you don't get" or something along those lines.

 

So simply ask.

You're new, here, ain't you?

Sure. Worth a try. I'm not holding my breath ...

Been around longer than you think.

 

With enough people asking, there must be a reason for asking or dissatisfaction emanates, and you don't want to upset your clients.

Re: Holding multiple ISC2 certifications - AMFs

@amandavanceISC2,

 

Has there been any consideration to making certification cycles coterminous?  I have repeatedly found that doing so minimizes workload and record keeping.  In this case, it would help both the members and (ISC)². To make it work, there would be the need to prorate AMFs and CPEs.

 

Amongst other things, it would avoid odd situations such as having one CPE appear in the "active transcript" for one cert and the "previous transcript" for another cert.
