PCIP Credential Opportunity (and Discount!) at PCI Workshop

I am pleased to announce that the Treasury Institute, in coordination with the PCI Security Standards Council, is presenting a PCIP educational opportunity as part of the PCI Workshop.  This will provide attendees with an overview of the new PCI qualification and help in preparation for the PCIP exam.  To make this opportunity even more attractive, attendees qualify for a substantial discount on the testing fee.  

This means for your workshop registration fee, you get the bonus of the additional PCIP instruction plus a discount on the cost of attaining this credential. 

Here are the details.

The PCIP is a credential for industry professionals who demonstrate their expertise in and understanding of PCI standards. The PCI Council awards this qualification and serves as an impartial, third-party evaluator of each candidate’s knowledge of PCI standards. The Program is a direct result of feedback expressing interest in an individual qualification that does not require a sponsoring employer.
The PCI Council will provide this PCIP instruction as part of the Treasury Institute’s Workshop.  There is nothing extra to sign up for, and no additional cost for this bonus session.   At the end of the workshop, attendees will receive a code that gives them a significant discount on the PCIP testing fee.

This will be instructor-led education.  The PCI Council has agreed that any attendee who decides to take the full PCIP eLearning course afterward can use their code to receive the same discount on that, too.

There is no requirement to take the test for the PCIP credential if you don’t want to.  If you choose to take the test, your discount code will be good until May 30, giving you about three weeks after the workshop to apply to become a PCIP, and until June 30th to take the exam or the course + exam.  You should also understand that the PCIP education – while it is thorough – does not guarantee you will pass the test.

The PCIP education will be split over Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning.  We will have our Higher Ed PCI case studies with separate IT and Finance/Business tracks Tuesday afternoon.  This promises to be a very exciting agenda.  

I look forward to seeing you there.
