I am scheduling my exam of SSCP a day before CC (Free Exam) -Due to some reasons. I would like to know whether or not this is possible, as I read somewhere that a person would be ineligible for a free CC exam if he/she has already passed an ISC certification before.
I am asking this in case of provisionally passed SSCP, a day before the CC free exam.
I believe the restriction applies to current certificate older. Why your situation is definitely an edge case, you will not be certified SSCP on October 25th so you should be eligible to sit for the CC exam.
That said, the CC is targeted at individuals with no cyber security background while the SSCP requires several years of experience. The expectation, as far as I understand it, is for people with the CC to start their journey and eventually move to the other certifications.
From a personal perspective you're adding $50 to your AMFs without real perceivable gain.
Thank you for your kind response. Actually, I am not 100% sure whether or not I would pass SSCP or not, thus, utilizing the time to attempt two certifications at once. Actually, my test center is also far away from where I live.
As for the $50, I would consider it the fee for taking a free exam (having more on my CV)
