On January 31, 2021, Check Point introduced a new certification model. For the certification “Check Point Certified Security Master” (CCSM) there will be no course or exam anymore. With an active CCSE certification as well as two more Infinity Specializations, the CCSM will be automatically awarded. There is a new top certification "Check Point Certified Security Master Elite" (CCSM Elite), which will also be automatically awarded with an active CCSE and four Infinity Specializations.
