Passed CISSP Exam ( 19- Nov-2018 )

Hello Guys,

 

I have passed my CISSP certification on 19th November 2018. I had submitted my endorsement application on 5th December 2018. Almost 6 weeks already been over & I am not hearing back anything from ISC2. Is there anyway to check the latest updates on my endorsement status ? Will it takes the whole 8 weeks time ?

 

Regards,

MM

Hi,

 

Congrats!!

 

You can check the status in your profile (It will be changed to Active member from non-member) but now the trend seems to be 9 weeks for the endorsement process completion.

 

All the best!

Thanks for your reply.

I have checked the status & it is currently showing the ISC2 Associate certified status under My profile section. Do you think I need to wait some more time. Earlier I had a email communication with ISC2. Please have a look below summary.

Hello Mittal, Mohit

 

Thank you for your inquiry.

 

You received the email notifying that you are Associate of (ISC)² probably because you have chosen to take the exam and become Associate of (ISC)² when you are registering for the exam.

 

Please do not worry.  Kindly be confirmed that your endorsement application to become certified CISSP is received on Dec 5 2018.  Currently your application is put under queue for review and further process.

 

Typically, the endorsement review process runs around 4-6 weeks; however, due to a high volume in application, it may take up to 8 weeks to complete the review of your application. This could be done sooner than the 8 weeks, we ask to allow the full time for review.

 

I hope the above information helps.

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

 

By the way, would you allow us to opt-in all from contact preferences on your behalf, so that you can receive important updates from (ISC)²?

Hi Mohit,

 

Based on the email communication i can understand you have chosen to be an associate. 

If a candidate opts to be an associate the reason would be he is not having required 5 years of work experience which is mandatory and a pre-requisite to be a CISSP. Is it the case with you ?

 

9 weeks time i have mentioned is about the endorsement process if you submit the work experience .

 

Through the Associate of (ISC)² program, you can take any of ISC2 certification exams without the required work experience. When you pass, you become an Associate of (ISC)² as you work to gain the necessary experience to achieve full certification. 

 

So if you have submitted necessary experience documents along with ISC2 endorsement request, then you have to wait 9 weeks (my guess about the duration because for me it was 9 weeks), once your application through, you will become Member and CISSP will be awarded.

 

Cheers

Hi Mouli,

 

I am having more than 10 years of experience in the relevant field. The endorsement has been submitted on 05th Dec 2018. Is there any way to track the endorsement status ?

Hi,

 

You can check .

 

Certifications --- Endorsement

or

From your profile page go to Endorsement page

 

my guess is your endorsement application will take 8 to 9 weeks time. So expect the approval by Feb first week
