About the course
The CISA training course outline
The ISACA Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) qualification is the globally recognised certification for IS audit control, assurance and security professionals. Being CISA-certified showcases your audit experience, skills and knowledge, and demonstrates you are capable to assess vulnerabilities, report on compliance and implement controls within the enterprise. Launched in 1978, CISA is held by over 140,000 IT and accountancy professionals worldwide.
The CISA Exam Preparation course is a classroom training session, which provides a comprehensive revision programme for the key job practice knowledge domains as well as exam preparation exercises that help delegates pass the exam at the first attempt. Delivered in just four days, this course has been designed to maximise time effectiveness and reduce any unnecessary time away from the office. It has also been shown to be more considerably more effective than self-study preparation, which requires more time and commitment.
This course is part of our ISACA Examination Preparation Programme which is designed to provide an intensive and complete preparation to help delegates pass the CISA, CISM, CGEIT or CRISC exams.

CISA training course exam
The CISA exam is not included in this training course and delegates must book their Computer-Based Testing (CBT) exam session directly with ISACA. Exam registration is continuous, meaning, delegates can register any time, no restrictions. Delegates can schedule a testing appointment as early as 48 hours after payment of exam registration fees.
Upon registration, exam candidates have a twelve month eligibility period to take their exam. This means that from the date you register, you have 12 months (365 days) to take your exam. It is important to note that the exam registration fee must be paid in full before an exam candidate can schedule and take an exam.
Our experience shows that delegates have the highest chance of success if they sit the exam approximately two to four weeks after completing the training course. See our dedicated CISA Campus page for more details.
The CISA exam is a 4-hour exam consisting of 150 multiple choice questions that cover the respective job practice areas created from the most recent job practice analysis.
