Course and Exam Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for attending the CGEIT course and sitting the exam. In fact, this is a practice accepted and encouraged by ISACA. We do however recommend you have some knowledge / experience of IT Governance.

Achieving the CGEIT Certification

In order to become CGEIT certified, you must meet the following requirments:

  1. Pass the CGEIT exam
  2. Adhere to the ISACA Code of Professional Ethics
  3. Agree to comply with the CGEIT Continuing Education Policy
  4. Provide evidence of appropriate IT governance work experience as (outlined below) defined by the CGEIT Job Practice

Required IT Governance Experience

You will need to prove a minimum of 5 years experience managing, serving in an advisory or oversight role, and/or otherwise supporting the governance of the IT-related contribution to an enterprise.

More specifically, you will need a minimum of one year of experience relating to the definition, establishment and management of a Framework for the Governance of IT. The type and extent of experience accepted is described in CGEIT domain 1 (check the curriculum tab).

You'll also need experience directly related to any two or more of the remaining CGEIT domains

There are no waivers or substitutions for CGEIT experience, except if you're a full-time university instructor teaching IT governance related subjects at an accredited university. Where every two years of teaching experience can be substituted for every one year of IT governance experience.

Unsure whether you meet the prerequisites? Don’t worry. Your training consultant will discuss your background with you to understand if this course is right for you.
