CAP Certification Prep Course


1 Day


Employees of federal, state and local governments; and businesses working with the government.

Course Description

Backed by (ISC)2, CAP credentialing aligns with the Risk Management Framework (RMF). The CAP recognizes knowledge, skills and abilities to authorize and maintain information systems within RMF. It demonstrates the ability to formalize processes to assess risk and establish security documentation.

This training is intended to serve as an add-on to the RMF for DoD IT core curriculum which delivers the requisite content to sit for the CAP exam.  A prerequisite to this course is a strong understanding of RMF, and it is highly recommended students complete the 4-day RMF training program prior to registration.

CAP candidates must have two years of cumulative paid full-time experience in one or more of the seven domains of the CAP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) to receive the CAP certification. If a candidate does not have enough work experience, they can take the CAP exam to earn an Associate of (ISC)2 designation.
