Students are grouped into two different classifications: Certification-Seeking or Non-Certification Seeking.
Certified Seeking Applicants
Certified Seeking Applicants are students that would like to become board certified. To apply and enroll as a certified seeking student, the individual must be 18 years of age or older and meet the eligibility requirements for the certification you are attending. Our certification programs require a specific level of education along with specified professional work experience.
Also, a person convicted of a felony, any crime of moral turpitude, or misdemeanor relating to honesty, theft, embezzlement, fraud, or the like shall be ineligible to become a board-certified professional with the McAfee Institute. The applicant must successfully pass the prescribed background check, which may include a criminal background check and examination process. Falsification or omission of information on the application form will be reason enough to disqualify an applicant from becoming or remaining a board-certified professional.
