Study Guides

The International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ) has published syllabuses to enable the standardisation of our training and certification programme. Consistent with this approach, we are also developing a number of publications to act as study and exam guides for each training course and its respective IBITGQ Examination.

While we complete and publish the official IBITGQ study and exam guides, we strongly recommend the purchase of these IBITGQ approved text books prior to starting a training programme and preparing for the IBITGQ Examination.
