FAQs about this Cloud Security Certification

Why isn’t there an exam required to earn the CCRMP?

From working with many major organizations, MCI and these organizations recognize that passing an exam validates cybersecurity knowledge. Practice-based certifications validate cyber job-readiness. Organizations often seek candidates who have actually completed projects and project deliverables relevant to the organizations’ requirements. Successful completion of CCRMP projects after each course demonstrates competency, therefore no exam is required.


Why learn the NIST RMF/FedRAMP?

The NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) and Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) have become the de facto standards for cloud security risk management in the U.S.in government and private sector organizations.

The NIST RMF is a six-step process developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for selecting and implementing security controls for information systems that protect an organization’s operations and assets. FedRAMP, which is based on the NIST RMF, certifies the security of cloud service providers (CSPs).


How do I complete this certification process?

Once you complete the 5-course track including all of the required NIST RMF/FedRAMP deliverables, you will be guided by Learning Tree on submitting the proper paperwork to MCI to issue your certification, which will be awarded within 30 days of receipt by MCI of the transcript and agreement.

NOTE: To maintain your CCRMP annually, you will be guided on the requirements of continuing professional education (CPE’s): 40 hours of cybersecurity CPEs per year.

The CCRMP certification fees (for both new and maintaining) are waived for attendees enrolled in 2018-2019.
