Improve your chances of passing ISACA’s CISM Exam

ISACA Central UK’s 3 day CISM Exam Preparation course

Wednesday 27th to Friday 29th March 2019

The course is run by the ISACA Central UK Chapter and as such is priced to provide good quality education to our members, at a cost effective price as a benefit to our members. With the closer cooperation between the UK and Ireland Chapters, the Central UK Chapter has now extended this benefit to the members of all the UK and Ireland Chapters.

We limit the number of course delegates to 10, to provide a more focused learning environment.

The course utilises the official ISACA CISM preparation course material, going through each of the 4 CISM Domains:

Domain 1 - Information Security Governance
Domain 2 - Information Risk Management
Domain 3 - Information Security Program Development and Management
Domain 4 - Information Security Incident Management

We also provide hints and tips on passing the exam throughout the 3 days, spotting the likely answer to questions etc. We also use group case studies to reinforce the learning.

At the end of each Domain we go through some example exam questions, then on the last day, we do a mock half exam. This allows attendees to see where their strengths and weaknesses are in each Domain and where they need to do more revision. The mock exam also gives them an idea of timing, e.g. they normally find that they have much more time to answer each question then they thought.

We run the course at a good quality hotel, Crowne Plaza Solihull, B91 3QD.

The cost is £595 + VAT for ISACA members and £795 + VAT for non-members. In addition, a colleague from the same organisation can attend the same course for just £400 + VAT for members and £490 + VAT for non-members.

This cost includes the course material in electronic form, refreshments and lunch for the 3 days. We also provide additional material which can be referred to after the course, to extend the attendees knowledge.
