Can CPEs from GIAC courses be used for ISC2?

Hi guys, just would like to enquire if i take a SANS course (e.g. GCIH), will the CPE credits earned for the course be able to be used for our CPEs in ISC2 certification? (e.g. SSCP)

 

thank you.

I would class this as "Attending a conference, educational course, seminar or presentation" and therefore a valid Group A CPE activity:

thanks for your info. just to confirm that it is not necessary to pass the GIAC certification in order to claim the CPE credits right? just participating in the GIAC course will do in order to get the CPE credits?

@wchen035 Thank you for reaching out. To confirm, as long as the activity is related to the domains of your certification, you may submit the CPEs. For training, you would receive 1 CPE per hour of attendance, up to 40 hours.

Yes.

 

Once you complete the course, in your SANS Membership Portal you can access all your "Orders" which will list the courses you've signed up for and paid.  From there you can access the CPE certificate for the course, which you can then upload to ISC2 or any other certifying body.
