Accredited Training Courses


The Institute of Information Security Professionals accredited training scheme provides a valuable service to training providers, and enables members to develop skills to progress their careers.

The IISP offers an Accredited Training Scheme, which assesses training courses offered by commercial training providers against the Institute's Skills Framework V2.

IISP accreditation means that course materials and content have been assessed to ensure that they meet the stated objectives of the course. Furthermore IISP verifies that the course content meets the competency level of our Skills Framework as claimed by the training provider.

Courses will either be accredited as level 1 or level 2 where:
  • Level 1 means the course imparts knowledge
  • Level 2 means that the course imparts knowledge and reinforces this knowledge through practical content
This enables attendees to build knowledge in areas of the skills framework where they might have gaps and to gain hands-on experience.

Courses for Users, Managers and Senior Executives who are not Cyber and Information Security Professionals will be accredited as level U1 or U2: 
  • Level U1 means the course covers awareness of cyber and information security issues
  • Level U2 means that the course  covers cyber and information security issues such as Governance, Risk and Incident Management in greater depth 

In addition to the learning experience and hands-on sessions (if the course includes these) training is a worthwhile way to expand your professional network – often training providers are happy to stay in touch with delegates and normally the contacts made with other delegates prove useful too in solving future problems, learning from the experiences of others and understanding how different companies and sectors approach security.


 Finally, CPD points can be claimed for CCP CPD for all IISP accredited courses at the rate of:
  • 1 point per hour of training for GCHQ/IISP approved courses (up to a maximum of 15 points) 
  • 1 /2 point per hour of training for all other courses (up to a maximum of 15 points)
