Answer: For the PCI QSA certification you have to attend a specific Council's QSA training course (the ISO 27001 LA course is not acceptable in this case). For more information, please see: https://pt.pcisecuritystandards.org/assessors_and_solutions/become_qsa

Since PCI requires the implementation of security controls, the Lead Implementer course can help you understand how to build an information security program, which can provider a stronger basis for evaluation.

We received this question:

>The response does not answer my question. The PCI QSA requirements stipulate that, in order to qualify for QSA, a candidate must hold certifications from each of two lists: a list of security certifications and a list of auditor certifications. The list of auditor certifications includes ISO 27001 Lead Auditor.

>Would taking this course and passing the exam satisfy the requirement for an auditor certification as stipulated by the PCI QSA prerequisites?

Answer:

First of all, sorry for this misunderstanding.

Our ISO 27001 Lead Auditor course is accredited by Exemplar Global (formerly known as RABQSA), so once approved in the final exam the issued ISO 27001 Lead Auditor certificate can be used to fulfill the related prerequisite to your path to become PCI QSA.
