    Looks pretty cool. The pessimistic side of me thinks it will not be very good. I hope someone will chime in with insight proving me wrong.

    The CAP by ISC2 has been around for a while and it’s based on NIST as well, but it rarely is listed in job postings. Actually implementing NIST for a full job is a pretty small subset of positions and almost all of them are U.S. government or contractors. Knowing NIST documents is great but honestly unless you are going to be an evaluator of compliance, being certified probably isn’t worth the money. Also, there are several implementation flavors of NIST within the government, so actually knowing the flavors is much more valuable...but the only way that will happen is if you work in that environment.
