CSCIP is the smart card industry’s only standardized certification program that recognizes professionals who possess advanced levels of smart card industry knowledge and experience. Those LEAP members who wish to achieve certification as experts in smart card technology may do so at any time.
CSCIP–testing includes knowledge of the following principles:
- Smart card technology fundamentals
- Application/data management
- Identity and access control usage models
- Payments usage models
- Mobile/Near Field Communication (NFC) usage models
Nine CSCIP training modules covering the body of knowledge are used to prepare for the CSCIP certification exam.
An optional, professionally-instructed one-day CSCIP training course is available. The course is based on the written body of knowledge and aids in the preparation for taking the three-part CSCIP exam. These full-day courses are taught by a certified CSCIP instructor who will review the key concepts and principles that will be included in the CSCIP exam. The training course is not required to take the CSCIP exam, but those who have taken it have found it extremely helpful understanding the most important concepts in the written body of knowledge and narrowing the scope of what needs to be studied for the CSCIP exam.
The LEAP/CSCIP professional development and smart card training program and exam are available for organizations with a large number of professionals who would benefit from organized, comprehensive training course and exam delivered at their corporate location at a reduced group rate cost.
