New training program delivers global consistency and rigor to trainers and candidates

London, UK: ISACA, a nonprofit association of 100,000 IT professionals in 180 countries, recently released COBIT 5, the business framework for the governance and management of enterprise IT. To meet the global demand for COBIT 5 training, ISACA has partnered with APMG-International, a global exam institute, to offer the COBIT 5 Foundation Course and exam. Passing the exam earns candidates the COBIT Foundation Certificate, which demonstrates knowledge and understanding of the COBIT 5 framework.

Launched in April 2012, COBIT 5 helps enterprises maximize the value of their information—the currency of the 21st century. Though its 16-year history, COBIT has been used by enterprises around the world to improve management and governance. COBIT 5 provides globally accepted principles, practices, analytical tools and models designed to help business and IT leaders maximize trust in, and value from, their enterprise’s information and technology assets.

COBIT 5 training enables IT and business professionals to learn what COBIT is and how it can be used to add value to their enterprises. COBIT 5 training and examinations are available through a global network of accredited training organizations (ATOs), which have met rigorous assessment standards. Trainers and training organizations are approved, accredited and licensed by APMG to deliver COBIT 5 training and examination services to candidates. Training organizations and individual trainers who are interested in offering COBIT 5 courses will need to become accredited prior to offering any COBIT 5 course. COBIT 5 exam candidates also can self-study for the COBIT 5 Foundation exam. After completing the self-study course available through ISACA, candidates can elect to take the exam online or sit for the exam at an authorized testing center.

“ISACA’s new COBIT 5 training will ensure high standards and quality processes for conducting courses and exams on a global scale,” said Urs Fischer, CISA, CRISC, CPA Swiss, COBIT 5 examiner and member of ISACA’s Credentialing and Career Management Board. “Individuals who complete the training, pass the exam and earn a certificate will validate their COBIT 5 knowledge to their employers and clients, and can show how enterprises can benefit from the framework.”
