Tigerscheme Qualifications

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 QSTM is undertaken as a one day assessment. For the opportunity to undertake a 4 day course and assessment, please visit our Training Providers page.

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.
