CCSM renew

Jump to solution

Hi folks!

A question for you about the CCSM renewal procedure.

I've gained the CCSM R80 during 2019, studying on the official "Security Master Student & Lab Manual Rev R80.10 v2" .

The Next year I will need to renew it but apparenlty I haven't found any indication on the Certification FAQ below on how to do it.

https://www.checkpoint.com/downloads/training/check-point-certification-faq.pdf

Could you please help to sort this doubt out?

 

In case that it would be necessary to pass from scratch the 156-115.80 exam, do the manual "Rev R80.10 v2" remains valid?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best of all

Massimo

Massimo, 

I see your R80 CCSM is valid until November 2021.  We will have an upgrade path early in 2021.  No need to contact Account Services right now.

Contact me if you have any further questions.

If someone was going to expire shortly, we would extend until mid 2021.

Thanks

AFAIK, it is not allowed to pass the same exam twice to renew the certification.

@Jason_Tugwell & @shay_solomon, please advise

Just open a ticket with Account Services then as others did before. Your CCSM might then be extended.

Hi,

have a question regarding CCSM as well.
My CCSM will expire in February.

Now as the certification program for CCSM will change, will i lose my CCSM because of not having enough specialized infinity certificades?
Hust have CCME.

If no, when i would pass e.g. CCTA, CCTE and CCVS, would i be CCSM elite automatically when this certification path will go live/active?

Best regards
Vincent

Each Infinity Specialization Accreditation achieved extends the highest active core certification by one year.

Vincent you will not lose your Certification.  You are in a spot where we will work with you as mentioned above.

Come February you will only need the 2 Infinity Specialist Accreditations (ISA) to get to CCSM Elite.  We ask that you wait until February to get these as our system will not be looking for previous ISAs for this.

Reach out to me if you have any questions.

Thanks

Hi Jason,

unfortunately because of onboarding activities at my new employer, i was not able to join ISA trainings yet.
I want to attend VS Training 22/23 of March and Automation on 25/26 of March.
And i would like to try to pass the tests asap afterwards.

Will this extend my CCSM? 😇
