What are the differences or gaps between PSPO and CSPO courses in terms of focus areas and topics covered? Did anyone find the CSPO course useful to get past the PSPO I assessment?

FYI, there are no courses where I live and I have completed PSM I assessment via self-study.

I have just completed PSPO self study, my personal opinion is it wasn't easy this route.
Dont forget PSPO and CSPO are different, to do CSPO you would still have to do a course.
(Unless you have the course notes).
All I can offer is PSPO is the same format as PSM 80 questions in sixty minutes.
As there is no course near you its a tricky one, but its possible self study.

Here are the study areas for the exam, as you can see its very comprehensive.
The exam is made up from all this material, so forget about PSPO notes.
If the question is in the exam and you have read all these then this may suit your needs…

Thanks Michael.

I will do the CSPO classroom first and after addiional reading take a shot at the PSPO-I.

The coverage of topics is available at:


After that it would be PSM-II and CSP :-)
