Answer: First thing is that ISMS is not a certification, it is a system to protect information (ISMS stands for Information Security Management System). Considering this, currently we have two types of certifications regarding an ISMS: certification of an organization's ISMS, based on the requirements of ISO 27001 standard, and certification of persons who work with an ISMS as a lead auditor or lead implementer, but only the former issues a internationally recognized certification, based on courses accredited by institutions like IRCA or RABQSA. You can find detailed information about certifications for organizations and persons here: ISO 27001 certification for persons vs. organizations https://advisera.com/27001academy/iso-27001-certification/ .

In terms of competences to be successful in an ISO 27001 lead auditor or lead implementer course, more important than the years of experience is the understanding of the link between information security, technology, and business processes (e.g., someone can pass years of a professional life seeing only one aspect of IT while other professional in a couple of years can cover aspects from network infrastructure to business intelligence).
