Beta Program Announced for CSSP Training
School Dangers is soliciting beta testers for a new training and certification program that highlights the expertise of security practitioners who specialize in K-12 security or are tasked with security planning.
A select number of beta testers will have their tuition and certification fees ($800) waived in exchange for taking part in this private beta and providing feedback.
- How does the beta work? Once accepted, you will receive an email with your private beta credentials and link to an online evaluation form. Sign onto the SecurityCEU customer portal, follow the coursework and complete the certification test. You can either fill out the evaluation form as you take the course or at the end. Whichever is the most convenient for you. If you prefer to answer the form at the end of the course, you can print the form and take written notes. However, we still need you to complete the form electronically.
- What does private beta mean? A private beta means you are receiving access to our training program before it becomes available to the general public. Because of this, you may see portions that are missing some polish and some procedures may need some smoothing out. The private part means you promise not to point out all our warts and missteps during your use.
- When does it start and how long will it take?
You can start as soon as you receive your credentials. CSSP-I coursework is anticipated to take around 4 hours. We need you to finish the coursework and online evaluation within 2 weeks from when you get your credentials email. This will make sure have enough time to incorporate your comments in our final release.
- Is the private beta certification, the same as a regular certification? Absolutely! Unless you tell them, no one will know you were a beta tester. Your help insures everyone that comes after you gets the best possible experience, but all the information and test criteria are the same.
- What happens if I can't finish the course or online evaluation before the deadline? Absolutely! Unless you tell them, no one will know you were a beta tester. Your help insures everyone that comes after you gets the best possible experience, but all the information and test criteria are the same.
