Preparation is essential to passing the CGEIT exam and we strongly advise that you purchase the CGEIT exam and study guides. IT Governance is the exclusive approved reseller of ISACA publications in the UK, and all titles are available from our dedicated ISACA certification bookstore.

Continuing professional education

There is a continuing professional education (CPE) policy in respect of qualified CGEIT professionals. The goal of this policy is to ensure that all CGEITs maintain an adequate level of current knowledge and proficiency in the field of IT governance.

“CGEITs who successfully comply with the continuing professional education policy will be better equipped to support the Board of Directors and executive management.” The responsibility for setting the CPE requirements rests with the CGEIT Certification Board, which oversees the process and requirements to ensure their applicability.

Maintenance fees and a minimum of 20 contact hours of CPE are required annually. In addition, a minimum of 120 contact hours are required during a fixed three-year period.

Please see the Maintain Your CGEIT page on the ISACA website for further details.
