Submitting CPE for completing certifications

Hi,.

 

If I completed AWS certifications or the CCSK, what should I put it as when submitting the CPE?

 

 

Thanks

While you're waiting for a confirmation from (ISC)2 here, check this related post...

To answer your basic question, you get to use your own evaluation of which CBK domains apply for those study and course efforts. To do that, it is essential that you read and understand both the CBK domain descriptions for your certification and the (ISC)2 CPE Handbook.  Claim one CPE unit for each hour of course, and make a reasonable claim for time on self-study. If there is a published book you studied, I suggest claiming the book for the CPE by writing the required short book report.

Be sure to check the (ISC)2 web site occasionally to ensure you have the current CPE Handbook. The guidance changes about once a year. 

 

As for @Shannon's tip to read the other thread, you have to read the entire long thread to get the correct advice: DO NOT waste your time asking (ISC)2 staff for advice before submitting your CPE claims. Deep into the thread William @denbesten properly showed that Shannon's initial reply there to ask (ISC)2 was not the best advice. 

 

The lesson for me:

Follow Admiral Grace Hopper's maxim, 

"It's better to beg forgiveness [deal with an audit] than ask for permission."

 

Good luck,

Yes, they did say that their support staffs' go-ahead can't be relied on; but I was curious to see whether they'd have anything different to say here... Man LOL

Amanda,

For the begin/end date, would that be the time frame that it took me to obtain the certification?

@S3cur1tyExprt I apologize for the delayed response. Yes, it would be the time frame you studied as long as it was within your three-year cycle.
