Training & Certification

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.
