Why study this course

The Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT®) certification is framework agnostic and the only IT governance certification for the individual. Whether you’re seeking a new career opportunity or striving to grow within your current organisation, CGEIT proves your expertise in enterprise IT governance, resources, benefits and risk optimisation.  

As the first and only designation to recognise skilled IT governance professionals, ISACA’s Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT) certification can give you the comprehensive know-how to assess organisational needs and risk appetite, the mindset and confidence to gain buy-in from upper management for IT initiatives, and the ability to shift the perception of IT to a value center. 

The CGEIT Exam Preparation course is an intensive, four-day review program to prepare individuals who are planning to sit for the Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT) exam. The course focuses on the key points covered in the CGEIT Review Manual and includes class lectures, group discussions, exam practice and answer debriefs. The course is intended for individuals with familiarity with and experience in IT and enterprise risk management. 

This course includes a digital courseware manual and access to the CGEIT Questions, Answers and Explanations (QAE) database for 12 months.

As this is the latest version of CGEIT, this course is run over four days to ensure we can dedicate enough time to each of the four domains.
