"I enjoyed the self-paced ISO 27001 Lead Implementer course. The instructors are clearly all hugely experienced. They were engaging and explained/emphasised all the key concepts and requirements very clearlly. I passed the exam comfortably on my first attempt. I attribute this completely to the quality of the tuition. Thank you."

"The course was just right. It gives a detailed overview of ISMS, with plenty of real word scenarios and practical tips. I watched it through 3 times and took notes, this was more than enough prep to pass the exam."

- Michael, 5 stars

"Product ***** (5 stars) I found this course extremely helpful and well presented, particularly the first instructor. I managed to complete the course and pass the exam in just four days! The material was succinct, examples were constructive and a lot of topics were covered in an easily understandable and digestable format. Two thumbs up! Highly recommend, particularly if you have existing information security knowledge. Customer service ***** (5 stars) The best part of taking the ISO27001 lead implementer course with IT Governance was the customer service. My customer service rep Donna was incredibly helpful and available, particularly during the busy holiday time (I took my exam on Christmas day, purchasing the course earlier that week). Rather than flogging the most expensive course package to me, Donna listened to my needs and time constraints and suggested the self-study course. Furthermore she went above and beyond to help me respond to certain queries while the instructors were on leave. 10/10 for professionalism, efficiency and response time. Excellent service, thoroughly recommend starting with IT Governance if looking to obtain IT/cyber-related certifications, very personal and hands on experience."
