What is the format of URM’s CISMP Course?

URM delivers the CISMP training(BCS) Course as both a public schedule and on site training course.  If you attend our public schedule courses, these are typically residential and held at purpose designed training venues.

When attending a URM CISMP training course, you will experience a dynamic and interactive mixture of traditional classroom training, syndicate exercises, mock exams and group discussions.  A case study is used through the week, with exercises and workshops stemming from it, as well as mock exams each day to ensure you are well prepared to take and pass the BCS administered 2 hour multi-choice exam on the final afternoon.  You may wish to use the evenings to review some of the comprehensive courseware notes and practice answering mock exam papers.

 Why train with URM?

We believe that the key differentiator between URM and other CISMP courses is the calibre of our trainers.  You will benefit from the fact that all URM’s trainers are practising consultants, each with extensive information security and risk management experience.  As such, they are able to translate best practice theory into ‘real world’ practical applications.  URM’s trainers all adopt a facilitative approach, where the goal is to maximise knowledge and skills sharing across the whole group.

You can also be reassured by our track record.  URM is by far the most experienced and successful training provider in the UK, having delivered the course for over 15 years and having consistently achieved a pass rate of 97% and above.

URM's BCS CISMP course is the only course in the UK to have been certified both by CIISec (now the Chartered Institute of Information Security) and as part of the NCSC Certified Training scheme.

Here are a number of comments from delegates who have sat URM’s CISMP course

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and most of that was down to the trainer’s delivery of the course syllabus. The depth of general knowledge delivered by him on top of the detailed course material with reference to real world experience was outstanding. The course delivery exceeded my expectations and I am really pleased I went with URM as this course provider. Will definitely will be using URM again for future courses.

Daryn and I are very happy with our results, so please pass on our thanks to the trainer who was an excellent tutor and helped to make the course enjoyable and informative. We were impressed with the venue and I would certainly recommend URM services to anyone who is looking at gaining BCS qualifications or equivalent.
