Re: ACCP code level change

The training class will be updated to 6.x in April.  The exam update will follow that by a couple months.  We'll make announcements here when the course and exam are updated.

Re: ACCP code level change

Would it be smart to wait till April to take the Clearpass bootcamp?

Re: ACCP code level change

That would be my recommendation.  Better to get the newer material.  The course will also be cheaper since it will be elearning for lecture and virtual training for labs.

Re: ACCP code level change

 

I am getting pressure to go ahead and take the (3.9/5.1) ACCP Exam.  

 

Does anyone have any advice on preparing for it? I have heard study the related courseware but if there is something else that may help us pass?

Any news on the update of the certification to 6.x? I'm scheduled for training in September and would very much like to follow up with a certification.

Re: ACCP code level change

It's in Pearson VUE's hands now.  Expect 2-2.5 weeks.  Absolutely by end of August.

Re: ACCP code level change

Hi Chris,

 

That's great news! A couple of quesitons. Do you know if there will be an ACCA and a ACCP test; or, just a refresh of the ACCP? Is there any chance that the new ACCA/P Study Guide/s PDF will be released before the test is released? It would be great to start preparing to take this test when it is released at the end of August.

 

One more question. Can you share the estimated cost for the cert?

 

Thanks!

 

-Mike

Re: ACCP code level change

For now it will just be an update to ACCP.  The cost will remain $125 as it is for all of our Pearson VUE certs.

 

We are investigating the creation of an ACCA but no timelines have been set.

 

The study guide will be posted upon exam availability as we don't want to have a study guide available until the exam is ready.
