The CGEIT qualification
The CGEIT (Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT) qualification, awarded by ISACA®, demonstrates that holders have the expert knowledge and experience necessary to support the governance of enterprise IT. This ensures that an organisation’s IT is governed from the top, and therefore aligned with business needs and goals.
The certification was designed for professionals with significant management experience relating to GEIT and is recognised across the world as one of the information security industry’s premier qualifications.
What are the requirements for the CGEIT qualification?
The CGEIT certification is awarded to candidates with at least five years of relevant work experience, who pass a rigorous written examination.
ISACA defines four CGEIT domains on which you will be examined:
- Domain 1: Governance of Enterprise IT (40% of exam)
- Domain 2: IT Resources (15% of exam)
- Domain 3: Benefits Realization (26% of exam)
- Domain 4: Risk Optimization (19% of exam)
You can find more information about the four domains on the ISACA website.
How to register for and schedule the CGEIT exam
The CGEIT exam is offered via a computer-based testing (CBT) session, which is available online or at a PSI exam centre all year round. All candidates must first register online directly with ISACA. They will then receive email instructions on how to schedule an exam appointment.
Continuing Professional Education
The CGEIT CPE (continuing professional education) policy aims to ensure that all CGEITs maintain an adequate level of knowledge and proficiency by attaining and reporting 20 CPE hours a year.
In addition, a minimum of 120 contact hours are required during a fixed three-year period. Failing to comply with these requirements will result in your CGEIT designation being revoked.
See the Maintain CGEIT Certification page on the ISACA website for further details.
