Why choose IT Governance for your training needs?

IT Governance is your one-stop shop for high-quality and cost-effective training solutions, including courses on the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), ISO 27001, the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), and COBIT®.

Our training courses are for all staff, from basic Foundation level through to advanced courses.

IT Governance is proud to be partnered with the following training organizations:

IBITGQ (International Board for IT Governance Qualifications) 

IBITGQ is a not-for-profit association dedicated to providing global training, certificated qualifications, and continuing professional development for information security, business resilience, and IT governance professionals.

IBITGQ is an examination board that specifies the syllabus and learning outcomes required for the training courses and exams associated with IBITGQ qualifications. It is also responsible for appointing certificated training organizations (ATOs), which develop their own training material to meet the requirements of each syllabus, and is independently certificated by GASQ (Global Association for Software Quality) as meeting these requirements.

IBITGQ qualifications are certified by GASQ, which is fully certificated to the ISO/IEC 17024:2012 standard (Conformity assessment – General requirements for bodies operating certification of persons).

All IBITGQ training courses are created by IT Governance. These courses are part of the unique ISO 27001 Implementation Learning Pathway, which was created by leading ISO 27001 experts Alan Calder and Steve Watkins. This pathway includes the introductory ISO27001 Certified ISMS Foundation course and our internationally renowned ISO27001 Certified ISMS Lead Implementer and Lead Auditor courses.


IBITGQ-approved courses and examinations are: 

  • Known as the ‘practitioner’s qualification’, combining an academic and practical approach
  • Certified by GASQ, an independent exam body certificated to ISO 17024
  • Global industry benchmarks for IT governance qualifications, with structured syllabi and learning outcomes
  • Designed to maximize time effectiveness and reduce time away from the office
  • Delivered in the classroom or online to be flexible and allow access from anywhere in the world
  • Part of learning pathways with Foundation and Advanced levels to support future training

Customer testimonials

“I wanted to express my gratitude for the way in which you managed the GDPR course last week. Whilst it was heavy going at times (not surprising given the volume of material to cover) you made the days enjoyable and informative. I am almost feeling confident talking through the implications for us back at the ranch. Attending the course was a good decision and makes me feel we are well placed to approach the work required to be ready for May 2018. Thanks again for your thorough and supportive approach.“

Tony Couch

“I recently had the privilege of attending one of Steven’s ISO27K Lead Implementer Master classes. Following many recommendations I had high expectations. I was not disappointed. Steve was an excellent instructor and took the time to weave the individual interests and concerns of each of his students into the delivery of the course.
As a former Instructor I cannot commend him highly enough. As a student - he and IT Governance exceeded all expectations. Thank you.”

Kevin Ingleby, Intranos Ltd

“The information was presented in a good logical fashion. Each section adding on to the previous. Gordan was very helpful with all student questions. It helps my company be able to complete 27001 audits internally, instead of paying a consultant.”

Josh  This review was received in response to a survey of class participants, who received a free ebook as a thank you for taking the time to give their honest opinion.
