The CSP Exam (Automation Specialty):
The exida Cybersecurity Practitioner (CSP) program is a certificate program that provides confirmation that an attendee shows competency by retaining the knowledge presented in this course. The CSP program also provides an analysis of where the candidate’s strengths and weaknesses lie, helping participants judge their competency level if interested in obtaining a certification like the CACE or CACS.
The exam will be given at the conclusion of the training course and is optional. Therefore, if you wish not to participate, please let your instructor know. The candidate must achieve a minimum of 80% on the exam in order to receive their CSP certificate.
