CISA Exam Boot Camp

The CISA certification training course begins with a review of the IS audit process based upon internationally accepted audit standards. Students then learn methods for conducting a risk assessment as well as techniques to successfully evaluate the effectiveness of Information Technology (IT) controls based upon the identified risks. Students will also become familiar with Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) from an IS auditor’s perspective. The course will also review the processes for ensuring the organizational strategies and objectives are met not only during the acquisition, development, and testing phases of the systems life cycle but also during the operations and maintenances phases.

While designed to review the IS audit processes and procedures, this CISA certification training course has a focus on preparing candidates to sit for the CISA certification examination. This focus includes practice exams and question analysis to aid students in figuring out exactly what the questions are asking and how to answer them.

This is a preparation course designed to supply the necessary skills to successfully obtain your CISM certification. The exam and ISACA membership are not included in the price of this course. Please follow this link to register and schedule your exam.
