We are now offering both the training and the exam online for QSA certification. The class will be a combination of computer-based training as well as an instructor-led session that must be completed prior to the exam. The exam will be delivered remotely using a proctoring service. This will allow your organization to continue to maintain certified staff under the constraints of COVID-19.
