Ensure that your IT systems meet the business's needs - through leadership, and organisational structures and processes. Learn about the roles, responsibilities and various focus areas of IT governance.
Do you have management, advisory or assurance responsibilities, relating to the governance of IT? If so, the CGEIT will help you provide excellent IT governance. Get recognised for your advanced IT governance experience and knowledge, with the internationally-recognised ISACA CGEIT certification.
Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.
Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.
This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a Certification Guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
During this three-day course, you'll learn the five domains of CGEIT.
Domain 1: Framework for the Governance of Enterprise IT (25%)
Domain 2: Strategic Management (20%)
Domain 3: Benefits Realization (16%)
Domain 4: Risk Optimization (24%)
Domain 5: Resource Optimization (15%)
Ensure the definition, establishment, and management of a framework for the governance of enterprise IT in alignment with the mission, vision and values of the enterprise.
Ensure that IT enables and supports the achievement of enterprise objectives through the integration and alignment of IT strategic plans with enterprise strategic plans.
Ensure that IT-enabled investments are managed to deliver optimized business benefits and that benefit realization outcome and performance measures are established, evaluated and progress is reported to key stakeholders.
Ensure that an IT risk management framework exists to identify, analyze, mitigate, manage, monitor, and communicate IT-related business risk, and that the framework for IT risk management is in alignment with the enterprise risk management (ERM) framework.
Ensure the optimization of IT resources including information, services, infrastructure and applications, and people, to support the achievement of enterprise objectives.
CGEIT exams only take place twice a year. Below are the exam dates for 2016:
Exam date - 11 June 2016
Exam Date - 10 December 2016

Should a student complete a Firebrand Training Program without having successfully passed all vendor examinations, the student may re-attend that program for a period of one year. Students will only be responsible for accommodations and vendor exam fees.
There are no prerequisites for attending this course, but some knowledge / experience of IT governance is recommended. However, in order to be eligible for receiving the CGEIT certification, you must meet the following requirements:
A minimum of five years experience managing, advising or otherwise supporting IT governance in an enterprise, is required for CGEIT certification. This experience must meet these specific requirements, based on the CGEIT Job Practice domains:
There are no waivers or substitutions for CGEIT experience, apart from one exception: Two years as a full-time university instructor teaching IT governance related subjects at an accredited university can be substituted for every one year of IT governance experience.
Individuals can take the CGEIT exam prior to meeting the experience requirements. This practice is acceptable and encouraged, although the CGEIT designation will not be awarded until all requirements are met.
Don’t worry - we’ll discuss your technical background, experience and qualifications to determine whether this accelerated course suits you.
