BLOOMINGTON, MN, Feb. 23, 2016 – Logical Operations, the world’s leading provider of information technology instructor-led courseware, has entered into a partnership with computer-based testing global leader Pearson VUE to deliver its new cyber-security exam at test centers around the world.

The agreement means that candidates will be able to sit the high-stakes exam, Logical Operations CyberSec First Responder®: Threat Detection and Response, at Pearson VUE’s network of highly secure test centers globally.

Delivered in an instructor-led setting over a five-day period, Logical Operations’ CyberSec First Responder: Threat Detection and Response training curriculum is designed for information assurance professionals who perform job functions related to the development, operation, management, and enforcement of security capabilities for systems and networks. The course prepares security professionals to become the first line of defense against cyber-attacks by teaching students to analyze threats, design secure computing and network environments, proactively defend networks, and respond to and investigate cybersecurity incidents.

“We’re very excited to launch this new exam in response to increased demand for cybersecurity validation,” said Paul Hoffmann, director of certification programs at Logical Operations. “Partnering with Pearson VUE means that our candidates will now have the convenience of being able to schedule their exam online and attend a test center near to where they live or work, including US military bases worldwide.”

Bob Whelan, managing director of Pearson VUE, said: “I am delighted that this new partnership will not only improve the lives and careers of IT professionals around the world, but also lead to greater protection from cyber-threats once the candidates get qualified.”
