FW: CISSP versus Associate CISSP

Nanofyt,

You are correct, the test for CISSP and Associate CISSP is the same.  Without five years of experience (or four years 
of experience and appropriate education), the candidate will be granted an Associate CISSP, if he successfully passes 
the exam.  The question I have is, since you only have the one year of experience, and the CISSP is only good for three 
years (without continuing education credits), will ISC2 continue to support the Associate CISSP for four years if you 
obtain continuing education credits?

Bill

Subject: CISSP versus Associate CISSP

Dear all,

Just wondering if I understood well: the only difference between CISSP
and Associate CISSP is the professional experience, right? I.e., the
paper-based test is the same, isn't it?
I am just asking because while trying to register for passing the
CISSP paper-based exam in my capital city, I was asked to choose
between CISSP and Associate CISSP, while at this stage (i.e. the paper
test) there should not make a difference, so I am a bit confused. In
my case I have just graduated from a PhD in Computer Security, so I
should be able to validate 1 year professional experience but not
more, meaning that I can only obtain the Associate CISSP and then wait
4 years (working in this field) to obtain the full CISSP
certification, is that correct?

Thanks for your help!
Nanofyt
