New Courses and Certificates for R81.10

Hi,

Really nice to see some new courses and certifications 🙂
Many have been asking before how to extend CCSM Elite, will there be a CCSM / CCSM Elite for R81.10 aswell?

CCSM Elite can be extend by another Infinity Specialisation exam for a further 1-year.

i see none in Denmark.

How do i sign up for participation in Denmark? is that a burden on a danish vendor to supply?

Using the "ATC locator" there appears to be three ATC partners that you could enquire with in Denmark or attend an online option.

When is the last testing date for the current R80.30 exams as I can't seem to find it in the FAQ or anywhere.

@Jason_Tugwell should be able to confirm if we've made any announcements in this regard?

We will give a 90-day announcement before the R80.40 exams are retired.

I just successfully ran an online CCSA R81.10 class last week here at Shadow Peak, and would be happy to answer any questions about how the course material including labs has changed.

Other than the course material itself, there really isn't any other prep material out there other than the CCSA practice exam available through Pearson/VUE for $50 USD.

Magnus,

The R81 CCSA/CCSE exams are currently in development and are planned for release in February.

The CCSM and CCSM Elite are not version-specific in the new certification model.  Any version of a Specialist exam can be combined to extend a core certification.  So a CCSM should extend the CCSM by passing the Infinity Specialist exams to get to CCSM Elite.  A CCSM Elite may extend for one year by passing another Specialist exam.  The earliest CCSM Elites were certified in January 2021 and valid until 2023.  With a one-year extension, they will be valid until 2024.  By this time we will share our plans for CCSM Elite renewal.

Thanks

Jason

@Jason_Tugwell :

If CCSM is not version specific anymore, it shouldn't say R80 in the badges' description and URL: https://www.credly.com/org/checkpoint/badge/check-point-certified-security-master-r80

Hi,

I have scheduled to take the CSSE R.80 exam in May. Will it be available at that time?

If not, the scheduled exam will have "converted" to CCSE R.81?

Only when an official announcement is made will we know more, until then nothing changes.

Do you think I will be able to convert my scheduled (in pearson vue) exam from R80 to R81?

I believe that it would be better for me to be examined in the newest version. Do you agree?

You would likely need to do so in accordance with the Pearson VUE cancellation policy, believe this is outlined on the exam booking confirmation email. Sorry I'm not aware of another way.
