International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ)

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 organisations (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, which is IBITGQ’s lead training development partner and ATO in the UK. These courses include the unique ISO 27001 Implementation Learning Pathway, which was created by leading ISO 27001 experts Alan Calder and Steve Watkins. This pathway includes an 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 syllabuses and learning outcomes;
  • Designed to maximise 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; and
  • Part of learning pathways with Foundation and Advanced levels to support future training.
