They only have 4 offices around the world, so not every country gets their own ISC2 office if that's what you mean? https://www.isc2.org/Contact-Us#accordion-ec0be5accd8a4a36a5dbbcd3adb5307b

 

You can always start your own chapter if that's what you're missing? https://www.isc2.org/Chapters/Start-Chapter

 

Or start your own training provider if that's what you're referring to? https://www.isc2.org/Contact-Us#accordion-96a290048c69416ab3ad87f6c87f8952

 

EDIT: they also offer online courses that can be taken from anywhere in the world:

As well as offering private on-site training - I checked and Angola is an option that can be selected:

Maybe the issue is a provider for the certification tests?  Not sure if there is a list of them by countries.

After training people want to make exam. so this what i am speaking. where? Pearson Vue here does not work with ISC2. that why we professional want that pearson vue have access to ISC exams. like sscp, cissp and others.

I want make CISSP exam and others but i cannot because in my country the Pearson Vue has not acess.

So I think that (ISC)2 still offers the paper and pencil exam.  This is a question, best posted to the Admins who can pass along internally.

 

@amandavanceISC2 @Jarred_LeFebvre Would you be able to pass this message string to the appropriate personnel internally?

 

With thanks

Yes, I can see the issue - closest one is 758 miles away!

 

Have you tried speaking directly to ISC2 or Pearson VUE about this beyond posting on this forum which ISC2 don't necessarily monitor that closely?

Re: How many time need to wait to have ISC2 in my Country

@Admarnelson  Thank you for your post. The Pearson VUE center that is closest to you will need to reach out to their team to request to deliver exams for ISC2. Each center must meet very specific security requirements to be eligible to deliver our examinations. It is possible that the centers in your country do not meet the requirements. Unfortunately, if requirements cannot be met to allow delivery of ISC2 exams, the only other option would be to travel to the next closest center.

Re: How many time need to wait to have ISC2 in my Country

yeah. first I emailed to Pearson vue here in my country but not success, they said it depends of ISC2.
about 2 years I'm writing to ISC2 directly no success.
sometimes the answer is if you want get cissp or any certification need to travel to near country by me.
I replay it require additional money so what if i don't pass the exam?
