“I have certification in COBIT 5 foundations and ITIL 3 foundations and was looking for another way to talk about IT governance at my company. This course gave me some new insights and some new language to use. Thank you”

-Terri McDonnell


“I was looking for a course that gave me a good overview of IT governance. I have engaged and worked with 3rd parties implementing various elements of IT governance in isolation, but I never really had a great understanding of it as a whole. Having completed the course I feel that I know enough to give a presentation to colleagues. Considering the cost of the course, I have to say that this is excellent value for money, and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it to anyone needing a really good overview of this subject.”

– Richard Moran
