Tigerscheme offers two levels of qualification: Qualified (Check Team Member) and Senior (Check Team Leader). This structure applies across the ITHC (vulnerability assessment) qualifications, and the forensic qualifications, and is the basic structure that the Scheme will carry forward.
The Qualified level (Check Team Member), the assessment is based on a written paper, a practical element, a multiple choice paper and a brief interview. The key issue at this level is that there is a mandatory hands-on element that demonstrates the candidate’s successful application of theory and relevant knowledge. It is suggested candidates have around 6months to 1 year penetration testing experience.
The Senior level qualification (Check Team Leader) is based on a written paper, a multiple choice paper, a six hour 'assault course' practical assessment, and an interview during which the candidate is asked to explain their findings from the practical assessment. The multiple choice paper is used by the assessor not only to examine the knowledge possessed by the candidate, but also to direct attention to areas of potential weakness to be examined in the practical and the viva. This is a rigorous examination, and should be attempted only by individuals with a significant degree (3 to 5 years) of practical experience.
The SST assessment is run over 2 days.
*Important* For bookings received on or after 1st January 2017
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) have recently removed the requirement for qualified CHECK Team Leaders to sit a written exam when re-qualifying. Instead, it will suffice for them to pass the practical exam only. This is only applicable to those renewing their CTL status - NCSC will still require first time candidates to sit the written paper as well. This change applies to both the CTL/SST Infrastructure and CTL/SST Web Applications qualification.
With this in mind we have reviewed our pricing structure as follows:
For those making a booking for their first SST/CTL Web Apps or Infrastructure assessment (2 days); £1999 (VAT exempt)
For those making a booking for an SST/CTL reaccreditation assessment (1 day); £1499 (VAT exempt)
