This was my first ‘remote’ training experience. I must say that ITG really has executed all aspects of technology, content delivery and process very effectively. It was such a great pleasure to have the opportunity to attend a course with attendees from other countries and regions. I am thankful to have had the time with the instructor (Alan) with such expertise and teaching talents. I have a MUCH better understanding of ISO 27001 implementation/ ISMS application despite previous experience. The course has not only improved my current knowledge level, but has also provided insights regarding areas in which I need more focused study. It was very beneficial to have the material to review ahead of the time as well. Thank you!

Really got a lot out of this course, and the remote webex worked well. My understanding of 27k1 is greatly enhanced, and Alan's input provides more than the standard text book can.

The course was one of a kind and no book can replace Alan’s experience, teaching and insight. He’s a true expert on the subject and transformed my understanding of ISO 27001 into a comprehensible, useful and applicable tool and framework. I was afraid it would be a boring course, but not one dull moment with Alan. Time flew and I had many AHA moments.

The key benefit [of this course] was the savings in cost for travel. The second was being able to fully participate in the classroom setting without having to travel. The live audio and video components provide a near in-person experience. IT Governance was viewed as a lead player in this space. Previous experience with IT Governance has always been positive.

Finished this course last week. I found our instructor very articulate and thorough and was always willing to explain concepts in alternate ways in order to help everyone in the group understand the content. I would highly recommend taking this course through IT Gov

I would like to give IT Governance a special thanks for the quality of the training not because I passed them successfully, but because of the level of professionalism of the staff and the knowledge I gained.
