Really good preparatory training course in an easy to understand and navigate online format - clear modules with plenty of information to learn and a good preparation for the exam. Recommended and certainly value for money

Only reason not a 5 star review is, having attended IT Governance training with an instructor, I missed the interaction with this self-paced version - however, the course quality is very good and easy to follow modules with useful learning obtained - looking forward to my exam - recommended alternative source of learning

Course was brilliant - easy to access, very well structured and well explained, gave a much deeper understanding and ability work in this area than I had before. My only problem is the exam at the end - it was very badly explained, the login and registration process is impossible, there was no information given at the beginning of the course about what you have to do at the end, so I was unable to plan ahead, and as a result still have not been able to take the final exam.

Great course content including working examples, not just endless video. Pocket guide by Alan Calder is included and an excellent product in its own right. The exam requires installation of a remote webcam monitoring tool, be sure to check with you Info Sec before installing it :-)

Cheaper than other options. I also did not need to take time off work to do it. The only downside was not being able to ask a live tutor questions. But it did the trick and I passed the exam by proctor a few days after signing up.

Excellent being able to study for this whenever you want. Much better than having to find the time to attend a physical or virtual class. Only wish IT Governance did more distance based courses for other areas such as ISO27001 & PCI-DSS! - Highly Recommend!
