“This was my first interaction with The Cyber Scheme and it was a very positive experience. The booking was easy, the communication from the staff was great and any queries were quickly answered and resolved.

On the day the assessors were very clear on the rules, scoping and expectations. The scoping and interview aspects were handled really well, and it is reassuring to know that the assessors understand what is required and have a higher level of technical knowledge than the candidates.”

“I can honestly say that the CSTM exam was head and shoulders above the exam I sat 3 years ago. Both in terms of the exam content and the exam invigilators. The “open book” nature of the practical exam was a breath of fresh air, and the theory side was fair and certainly more “modern” than others I have experienced”.

Disability and special accommodation policy

Cyber Scheme will make allowances (where possible) for any candidate who requires special support during training and the examination. These allowances are to ensure you are given an equal opportunity to demonstrate the necessary skills and competence required during training and examinations.

When making any accommodation, Cyber Scheme will assess if any of the needs fundamentally undermine the quality of the examination. Reasonable accommodations are made for candidates who:

  • have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits that person in one or more major life activities (e.g. walking, talking, hearing and performing manual tasks;
  • have a record of such a physical or mental impairment;  or
  • are regarded as having a physical or mental impairment.
