A CICSP qualification acquired for the first time is valid for 3 years. The following steps are required to obtain a renewal of the qualification for another 3 years:

  • You apply for the extension with the application form and send us proof of your activities in the field of cyber security in connection with the application of IEC 62443-4-1/-4-2, including projects, as well as further training measures, attending conferences and writing technical articles. It should be clear from this letter that you have been working in the field of cyber security for the last 3 years and have continuously trained further.
  • You can take the CICSP update exam at the earliest six months before the expiry of your CICSP certificate or six months after the expiry of your CICSP certificate.
  • After reviewing your application, which also represents your order for us, you will receive an access code to take an online multiple choice test. You have 60 minutes for the test and can repeat the test once within 24 hours if you fail for the first time.
  • After successfully passing the test, you will receive a new CICSP certificate by mail, which is valid for 3 years.
    The certificate will be renewed for three years from the original validity date.
