Achieving the CGEIT Certification

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

  1. Pass the CGEIT exam

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.
