Certification levels

From Foundation to Expert, each certification level comprises a practice-oriented training course and a certification exam.

Each certification exam tests the knowledge and industry-established competencies covered in the corresponding course.

Attending a course is not a prerequisite for taking a certification exam.

The Secure Software Foundation Level is the entry-level course in the certification track.
This level aims at developing basic subject knowledge in a 1-2-day course.
This introductory-level certification demonstrates that you have acquired a basic knowledge of Secure Software.
