ENDORSER'S GUIDELINES wrote:
When acting as an Endorser you assume the responsibility of confirming the background and qualifications of the candidate you are endorsing. Below are a set of guidelines that you must consider and follow before you complete and sign the endorsement form. These guidelines may be used as a checklist throughout the endorser's review process and should be submitted along with the signed endorsement form.
Demonstrate that they have the minimum requirement for certification which is five years of Professional and relevant work experience in two or more of the 10 domains of the CISSP CBK® or four years of work experience with an applicable college degree or a credential from the (ISC)²-approved list.
Step 1 - Consistency Evaluation. A comparison shall be made of the job information provided on the resume to the requirement. Any discrepancies, or apparent discrepancies, shall be noted and recorded on the resume.
Step 2 - Job Verification. Each job listed on the resume as professional information security experience (ignore any positions that do not involve or relate to the requirements for certification) must be validated.
Step 3 - Determination if Jobs/Positions Constitute Professional Experience. Determining what jobs constitute professional experience (vs. those that are non-professional or para-professional) will involve a comparison between each job/position title and corresponding description of duties.
At the end of the process, the total number of months denoted as “Valid Experience” must be totaled and must equal the number of years required for the specific certification (60 months for the CISSP, 24 months for the CAP, and 12 months for the SSCP) to determine if the minimum experience requirement has been met.
