- 17How long does earning certification take?
How long it takes is largely up to you. If you choose a route that includes five-day class followed by an exam, then you’ll finish in less than a week. But to do this, you’ll either have to have a depth of knowledge in the relevant security technologies already or select a certification that’s very narrowly focused. The bottom line is that earning certification can take a week, or it can span several months. It’s basically up to you.
