This classroom session is presented by Dr Geoff Harmer, a licensed ISACA COBIT 5 and CGEIT trainer with over 30 years’ experience in IT service and IT governance management consultancy.

Using examples based on real-life COBIT 5 implementation projects, Geoff will provide a practical approach to delivering the benefits of COBIT 5 to organisations of any size. He will also provide advice and exam preparation to ensure you pass the COBIT 5 Foundation exam at the first attempt.

To support the learning objectives of this course, all delegates will receive a free and complimentary copy of Geoff Harmer’s best-selling textbook, Governance of Enterprise IT based on COBIT 5.


”This was an excellent course. If I was describing it to someone considering attending, I would call it a COBIT boot course or even a mini MBA at times. Geoff Harmer added so much to the course material […] brought it alive.”

Jonathan Sinfield – Head of IT, Marketform Group.

Geoff Harmer has trained me for ITIL Problem Management many years back, his distinct teaching methodology (Pedagogy) has prompted me to opt for my COBIT5 under his tutorship. He is an excellent trainer who doesn't believe in one size fits all but tailors his teaching to suit individual participant. No matter your situation, Geoff will add uncommon value at the end of training.
