The Value of Certification – Why ISO17024 Matters?

The IT Governance training team is constantly working on the development and selection of new training courses for the future. Our focus as always, is to provide a learning experience that delivers the knowledge required to implement the best practice associated with a career in information security, business continuity, service management and IT governance.

A key feature of all ITG training courses is that they also deliver an industry-standard certification. Qualifications and certifications are crucial to all IT governance professionals as they develop their careers in an increasingly competitive employment landscape.

But with so many certificates available in the market, how do delegates choose qualifications that have real and lasting value?

ISO/IEC 17024:2012 is the international standard that provides a global benchmark for the delivery of personnel certification programmes. Organisations that award certifications which are compliant with ISO17024 offer the highest quality and most recognised qualifications. These organisations include ISACA, (ISC)2, APMG-International, EXIN and IBITGQ.

Or put more simply – candidates should only choose to study for certifications that are fully compliant with ISO17024.

Our commitment to ISO17024 underpins our selection of the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ) as the certificate provider of choice for our flagship ISO27001 and ISO22301 training courses. Further details on the good work of IBITGQ and their commitment to ISO17024 can be read at
