I am working 60 or 80 hours a week in security between two jobs, will I be able to meet the minimum security experience requirements in a shorter amount of time? I am getting 40 hours from a full time cyber position and an additional varying 20-40 hours from my own security consultancy business. Taking into account the way IC2 stats part time hours are counted (2080 hours of part-time = 12 months of full time experience) would I be able to gain the necessary experience for the CISSP 1.5x as quickly?
The rule is pretty clear, but if additional clarification is required, @dcontesti is correct that it needs to come from (ISC)².
From ISC's web site:
Full-Time Experience:Your work experience is accrued monthly. Thus, you must have worked a minimum of 35 hours/week for four weeks in order to accrue one month of work experience.
Part-Time Experience: Your part-time experience cannot be less than 20 hours a week and no more than 34 hours a week.
- 1040 hours of part-time = 6 months of full time experience
- 2080 hours of part-time = 12 months of full time experience
@Kaity When there e is an official response to this, would you be kind enough to post on the Community as we are seeing more questions on this topic.
Sure. For Endorsement purposes, over-lapping in the same time period with employment experience is not accepted. We will accept part-time experience but not in the same week, month or year of the full-time experience.
