"I took the IT Governance CISSP course early 2019. The course was very thorough and the material provided enabled me to pass the difficult exam at the first attempt. In addition, Michael was a superb instructor and was able to pass on his vast amount of knowledge in an entertaining way. I would certainly use IT Governance again in the future."
