Preparing for the AVSE Exam

  1. Review the AVSE Exam Blueprint. The blueprint shows the specific objectives for the AVSE exam. Refer to the topics listed on the blueprint, and the relative weight given to each topic, as a guide to the knowledge and skills you will need.

  2. Take the AlienVault USM Anywhere training classes. This step is optional. You are not required to take training classes in order to take the AVSE certification exam. However, we recommend that you take two classes: AlienVault USM Anywhere: Deploy, Configure, Manage (ANYDC) and AlienVault USM Anywhere: Security Analysis (ANYSA). Unless you have extensive experience with AlienVault USM Anywhere, you will likely learn skills in the classes that are necessary on the job and are required for success on the exam. Each delegate who takes either the AlienVault USM Anywhere: Deploy, Configure, Manage (ANYDC) training or the AlienVault USM Anywhere: Security Analysis (ANYSA) training receives a voucher to take the AlienVault Certified Security Engineer (AVSE) certification exam at no additional charge.
