is CCSK required before appearing for CCSP ?

Hi,

I am thinking of getting a cloud certification. Which is best , CCSK or CCSP? 

can I appear for CCSP exam without passing CCSK?

 

Please suggest.

My suggestion is it depends on your background:  some prefer to study the CCSK with its 14 domains, as it provides good study material for CISSP purposes or for revision, if studying a concentration.   If you have the drive, passion and objectivity, I believe it provides a great study pathway to the CCSP.  These are my personal thoughts.

@umar,

It's hard to say which is better, it really depends on you, your background, experience and future aspirations. I strongly encourage you to visit both the CSA & ISC2 sites and review the requirements, test questions (samples) and Domains that are covered.

If I'm not mistaken, CCSP was designed to be a bit more comprehensive in terms of knowledge & experience. I could be wrong though.

 

Ultimately, unless your employer is paying, I think you'd want to avoid taking both certs. It gets quite costly and there is a significant overlap.

All the best!
