At the 2022 North America Community Meeting, PCI SSC announced the launch of Knowledge Training. These new training courses are designed to bridge the knowledge gap between organizations and assessors by helping learners speak the same language as the Assessor. In doing so, learners will be able to guide their organization through an assessment and any pre-work and work alongside the Assessor during an engagement, making for a much smoother, more efficient process for all involved.
Tracey Long, VP of Programs, discusses the new program in this video:
Knowledge Training allows individuals the same training and exam as the Assessor. Upon successful completion of training and the exam, learners will be given an acknowledgement of completion as well as have the option to opt-in to receiving a digital badge.
Knowledge Training is open to anyone who wishes to obtain additional knowledge of our programs. It’s important to note that a learner receiving a Knowledge Training acknowledgment are not qualified to perform PCI SSC related assessment or services. They now have demonstrated they have the knowledge and language to speak internally and externally to their organization about a specific version of a standard and program.
