It was brought to the attention of the ASAP Admin Council that many security sites as well as applicants and ASAP members were under the impression that ASAP membership is the equivalent to a form of validation or accreditation that the member is qualified to perform log analysis/malware removal.  

This is simply not true.  

Such a determination is strictly the responsibility of each individual site.  As indicated in the Charter revision, ASAP members also provide assistance with anti-virus software, firewalls, computer hardware issues, security updates, phishing, and more.

The revised ASAP Mission now includes:

Quote
If you see the ASAP logo or banner used by a website, bulletin board, or individual, you can be assured that you're getting the best support and assistance possible. ASAP members have varying fields of expertise:  some ASAP members provide assistance with anti-virus software, firewalls, computer hardware issues, security updates, phishing, etc., while others provide log analysis and specialized malware removal. The combined efforts of all ASAP members are dedicated to providing free security-related support to computer end users.


On the other hand, many members of ASAP do indeed perform log analysis/malware removal.  In those cases, it has been agreed by the Admin Council and ASAP Site Owners/Representatives to continue the practice of not admitting applicants who have yet to complete training.

The revised ASAP Member requirements include:
Quote
Applicants who provide assistance in log analysis/malware removal and have completed training are requested to provide the name and location of the school(s) where they received training and certification, including an Instructor's final evaluation and recommendation (if available). Multiple certifications are not necessary, but will be taken into consideration. Applicants still in training will not be deemed eligible for membership until training and certification has been completed in at least one school.
