ISSP Sustainability Associate Exam is Now Available

The ISSP Sustainability Associate exam is now available for entry-level sustainability professionals and those who are also interested in pursuing the advanced ISSP-CSP exam.

The ISSP-SA credential is the first of two levels of ISSP Certification, designed for individuals who are relatively new to the field of sustainability but have sufficient education and training to pass a test on core knowledge and understanding of key sustainability concepts.

A Globally Recognized and Accredited Sustainability Certification

Since beta testing of the ISSP certification program began last summer, more than 240 people worldwide have earned one of the two ISSP designations. Through their participation in the beta certification program, these pioneers have helped to validate the exam and test the processes used to apply for, score, and award the ISSP Sustainability Professional credentials.

ISSP has followed the internationally recognized ISO 17024 standard in development of the Sustainability Professional Certification program. ISO 17024 sets out globally recognized criteria for creating a certification program for individuals. Adhering to the ISO 17024 standard ensures that the ISSP Certification provides a global benchmark for sustainability professionals and industry-recognized credentials that can be carried across national borders.

How to Prepare for the ISSP Certification Exam

Because ISSP Sustainability Associate is the first level of professional certification, candidates can qualify for the exam relatively easily. Of course, the next step is education and understanding the content that will be on the ISSP-SA exam. That’s where we come in!
