Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT®

As technology has become more and more vital to the achievement of business goals and value delivery, enterprise leaders have realized that enterprise governance must be extended to information technology and information systems. Successful enterprises now accept that it is critical to align IT projects, assets and processes with their business strategies and business goals. As a key component of overall enterprise governance, IT governance has emerged as a mission-critical issue for small and large business enterprises worldwide. In order to support the growing demand from business and to promote good IT governance practices, ISACA® created the first and only designation to recognize skilled IT governance professionals—the Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT® (CGEIT®) certification.

Good IT governance is a key element of a well-performing enterprise. Enterprises need qualified information systems professionals
with knowledge and expertise that can help them identify critical issues and customize company-specific practices to support the
governance of information and related technologies. The uniquely governance-focused CGEIT certification ensures holders are capable
of bringing IT governance into an organization, can grasp the complex subject holistically, and enhance the value that the enterprise
obtains from its IT. Since its inception in 2007, thousands of professionals around the world have earned the industry-leading*
CGEIT designation as a means to affirm that they have the broad knowledge and wide-ranging experience necessary to support and
advance the IT governance of an enterprise and ensure its IT and business systems align with optimum effectiveness and efficiency.

Career Prospects

A CGEIT Certified Professional has several career opportunities open up to them, including:
  • Auditor
  • Security Officer
  • Privacy Controller
  • Risk Management

 Target Audience

The CGEIT certification was specifically developed for IT and business professionals who have significant management, advisory, or assurance roles relating to the governance of enterprise IT, including:
• IS/IT Directors
• IS/IT Managers
• IS/IT Consultants
• IT Governance Professionals
• IS/IT Executives

Course Description

This five (5) day event (CGEIT training) is the ultimate preparation for exam time and is designed to ensure that you pass the challenging CGEIT exam on your first attempt.
The CGEIT qualification is an internationally recognised symbol of excellence in IT governance awarded by ISACA. It is designed for professionals responsible for managing IT governance or with significant advisory or assurance responsibility for IT governance.
Achieving CGEIT status will provide you with wider recognition in the marketplace, as well as increased influence at executive level.

Course Objective

This training has been designed to prepare Delegates for the CGEIT examination by enabling them to supplement their existing knowledge and understanding so as to be better prepared to pass the exam, as defined by ISACA.

ISACA requires at least five years of IT governance experience in the five CGEIT Domains to qualify for certification. You can take the CGEIT exam prior to meeting ISACA’s experience requirements, but the CGEIT qualification will not be awarded until all requirements are met. We do not set specific entry requirements for this course.
