The right business framework can help the organizations align stakeholder needs, enhance communication, improve decision making ultimately enabling business goals. Look for ISACA’s new COBIT 5 training programs to learn the true power of a business framework. To facilitate COBIT 5 training worldwide, ISACA has partnered with APMG International the leading Examination Institute that accredits training and consulting organizations, and manages certification schemes for professionals to develop a COBIT 5 training and accreditation program.
Accreditation provides a codified approach for training organizations and individuals interested in becoming licensed to deliver COBIT 5 training and exams.
Benefit from the following:
Promotion on the ISACA web site and exposure to more than 110,000 constituents
Licensed use of intellectual property
A seamless process for administering training and exams globally
Trainers and training organizations must be approved, accredited and licensed by APMG before they can deliver COBIT 5 training and examinations.
Any training organization or individual who wants to deliver COBIT 5 courses and exams should follow the simple instructions below to initiate the accreditation process:
Email the Service Desk at APMG International to request an application
Submit the application to APMG
Please note: once you submit your application, APMG will assign you to a local operational office that will be your primary point of contact to coordinate accreditation, assist with exam bookings and answer any queries. Once your application is accepted, you will begin the accreditation program. Commercial training companies and individuals have licensed COBIT content from ISACA as the basis for the development and delivery of their own courseware. As licensees of COBIT for training purposes, these organizations are helping to advance the awareness and understanding of COBIT around the world. Licensees develop training courses independent of ISACA, using core content, course outlines and learning objectives provided by ISACA. Please note: ISACA does not review or endorse these training courses, nor does it accredit the trainers delivering the course materials.
Organizations licensed to develop courseware based on COBIT must offer the COBIT Foundation Exam or the Implementing Governance of Enterprise IT Using COBIT Exam at the conclusion of the training course. The classroom exam is administered by a proctor who is independent of the training provider. The COBIT Foundation Exam is also available online at ISACA’s eLearning Campus.
COBIT 5 is the only business framework for the governance and management of enterprise IT. This evolutionary version incorporates the latest thinking in enterprise governance and management techniques, and provides globally accepted principles, practices, analytical tools and models to help increase the trust in, and value from, information systems. COBIT 5 builds and expands on COBIT 4.1 by integrating other major frameworks, standards and resources, including ISACA’s Val IT and Risk IT, Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and related standards from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
COBIT 5 helps enterprises of all sizes:

Achieve operational excellence through reliable, efficient application of technology
Maintain IT-related risk at an acceptable level
Optimize the cost of IT services and technology
