I have tried many of the certification training courses on the market and have found that Certera offers the best overall experience. The course is completely interactive, which makes it engaging and effective. The trainer is knowledgeable and caring, which makes the course enjoyable. And I passed my certification test with flying colors.


I have tried a lot of CISM certification training courses and none of them have lived up to the hype. Certera, on the other hand, is not only an excellent course but also comes with a price tag that isn’t going to break the bank. I’ve recommended it to everyone in my organization and they too were blown away by how well it was put together. I can’t recommend this course enough!
