Q. Why train with PSYND?
PSYND is the only (ISC)² Official Academy in Switzerland. With us you will have all the latest updates about exams, you will work using the official material and you will test your preparation with a real exam simulation.
Q. What is an (ISC)² OTP?
An OTP, Official Training Partner, receives the material directly from (ISC)²: whatever you will get during our boot camps, it will be exam contents, and always up-to-date: the official (ISC)² courseware guarantees the most current version developed by (ISC)².
Q. How to recognize an OTP?
Official Training Partners are displayed in the webpage of (ISC)², and they are the only one authorized to display this logo on their webpages:
Q. What is the course language?
Material and the course are in English, and this is essential because this is the official language of the exam. The instructor will use the same keywords and expressions that you will find in the exam, to create an ideal 1:1 match.
Q. What if my English is not good enough?
Our instructor speaks also French, Italian and Spanish, if some things are not clear, some concepts could be explained again in another language.
Q. Could the course be given in another language?
If all the audience speaks another language spoken by the instructor, the course could be held in another language, but the training material will remain in English.
