This program is to assist candidates in preparing for the Certified Data Privacy Solutions Engineer (CDPSE) examination. Candidates for ISACA’s highly respected CDPSE designation can now take the exam using computer-based testing (CBT). CBT allows for in-person testing on a computer at an approved testing center. These are scheduled through ISACA International at the time of the CDPSE exam registration.

ISACA LA Virtual CDPSE Certification Review Course
The courses will be held on four Saturdays for CDPSE. These sessions are NOT designed as basic teaching sessions but rather to serve as comprehensive reviews for candidates with a proper educational background in all subject areas. Our goal is to cover all domains within the subject matter and provide clarity on more challenging concepts.
Each session will be led by an instructor and a facilitator who will address questions as they arise. The format will include a combination of lectures and discussions, with ample time allocated for participants to raise questions and engage in meaningful dialogue.
The sessions will run for up to five (5) hours each Saturday, from 8:30 AM PST to 1:30 PM PST, with scheduled breaks every hour. The length and frequency of breaks will be at the discretion of each instructor since the amount of time for each domain varies. Toward the conclusion of each session, the instructor may allocate time for a domain-specific question and answer session, utilizing a practice quiz.
October 14, October 21, October 28, and November 4, 2023 (up to 20 CPEs)
CPEs will be earned according to the ISACA Guidelines (1 CPE hour for every 50 minutes). If you happen to disconnect, the timer will resume when you reconnect.
8:30 AM – 1:30 PM PST
Virtual Sessions via Zoom
