- My View
Hi. I was wondering if anyone has taken this exam, and if you know how different it is from the previous standalone Implementation Specialist Exam since there is zero info publicly available except the exam blueprint. Thanks!
It's a different course.
CIS is the basics, getting implementation experience under your belt. CIS-FM is specifically for those going onto the FM implementation course.
Thanks. So as far as you know, is the "original" CIS course still offered? Because I don't see one offered in Kryterion. And my question was did anyone take this course?!

The original carried the name "Implementation Bootcamp" and used StartNow as a framework. The course has since been superseded with a newer CIS course, which uses SAIF.
I've just checked the documentation at https://www.servicenow.com/services/training-and-certification/certified-implementation-specialist.html and... yeah.. that looks confusing.
Because I don't see one offered in Kryterion. And my question was did anyone take this course?!
Base CIS or the CIS-FM course? I know of people that have done the former; not sure about the latter, sorry.

Definitely confusing. I don't see the Base CIS Exam in Krypterion, just all the others. Aye aye aye! Thanks again!
Please check below blueprint which lists areas covered under CIS-FM exam.
Please mark answer as Correct, helpful as appropriate.
Thanks. As I mentioned in my original question, I know about the blueprints! I was wondering if anyone has taken the new exam!
So here's the best answer I can glean from reading posts / documentation for 10 hours. So confusing. The "old" CIS exam is deprecated, done. We now have 6 different CIS exams, based on specialty, all the same price. I'm all for a little bit of specialization (when I am admitted generalist) but $900 instead of $150? C'mon man! And besides plunking down $2k - $3k to take official SN courses, instead of learning on your own, you really just need to study the release notes very carefully and play around in your development instance, bang your head against the wall a few times until you get it right, and that's it, go take the exam and pass it! That's my plan. I'll let you know how that goes because I'm taking the CIS - FM exam next week! Good luck everyone. Peace!

Just to clarify:
... I don't want people getting the impression that one exam has now been replaced by six.
As an example: if you wanted to become a specialist in deploying Service Mapping, you'd do:
SFUN -> CIS -> Service Mapping fundamentals -> CIS-Service Mapping
andyho - is there a course roadmap diagram anywhere? That would help clarify things.
