Training & Certification

As a service to chapter members and the local IT Security community, ISSA Vancouver can serve as a facilitator to encourage course providers to schedule presentations in the Vancouver area. For example, based on local interest, the Vancouver chapter has sponsored several sessions of the CISSP seminars and certification examinations, saving attendees the costs of traveling to other cities in North America.

Some of the more familiar sources are:
 Computer Security Institute
 MIS Training Institute
 SANS Institute

If you are interested in having a course, seminar or certification examination brought to Vancouver, please contact the Member Services team at .
