Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this question but I am new to Vancouver and interested in attending a CISSP classroom based bootcamp in Vancouver to prepare me for the CISSP exam.
Any recommendations for a local training provider in Vancouver? I looked at SANS, they are super expensive and will not be running a course in Vancouver until June this year. I plan to take the exam in April and therefore looking to take training either in February or March. I noticed ISC2 do no offer any training in Vancouver, the nearest location is Seattle which will add additional costs (Hotel, Flight). So I am looking for a local and reputable provider in Vancouver.
Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated!
Have you considered self study? Several of us haven taken and passed the exam without taking a class because it already requires a minimum of five years of experience to be eligible for accreditation. There are some great resources online, in books, and with tools like practice exams and mobile device based quizzes. I also recommend joining a Facebook group like "CISSP Exam Preparation - Study Notes and Theory" because most folks there are also doing their own studies and have a lot of recommendations on what materials to use. The official CBK books tends to float at the top of most lists I've seen posted there. Also, you mentioned wanting to take the exam in April but the 15th of that month is when the new exam outline goes into effect. Be sure to see the Domain Refresh FAQ for more details.

I enrolled and participated in the online boot camp CISSP course two years ago. It was a very good experience. The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided extra study resources along with the included PDF version of the CBK textbook and flashcards. I also purchased a CISSP exam prep app and used practice questions on quizlet.
