Check Point’s CCSM Pathway is Changing

Check Point’s New Training Courses are rolling out this month and as part of this upgrade, their Master accreditation path is changing.

To become a Master you will need to pass both the CCSA and CCSE exams and then earn a selection of specialist certifications including CCTS.

On the 16th-18th of March Pentesec are running the final ‘old style’ CCSM Course, with limited spaces left. Passing this exam would entitle trainees to 2 Years as a CCSM before re-certification is required.

If you currently hold CCSE Certification, this represents an opportunity to advance with one course instead of multiple.

Being a Master equips you with the skills to troubleshoot and enhance a Check Point environment to a deeper level. It also entitles you to deeper access to Check Point support, bypassing wait times with fast track to a support engineers.

Bookings can be made online through our training website or via emailing

Delegates will now receive new and improved kits accessible via the Kortext Portal App.

For anyone who owns a valid E-Kit in the old format, Check Point are offering to transfer kits into Kortext for free for a limited time.

Quality of life improvements include:

Check Point E-Kits are fantastic resources for referencing how to manage and maintain your Check Point investments. They are also invaluable when preparing for re-certification exams.
