ISACA CET® Certification Exam

The 4 CET® exams are administered by ISACA® and are not included in the course. It is also possible to take the exams online.

As we are an Accredited Training Partner, you can purchase an ISACA® exam voucher from us.

When you register for an exam, you have one year to successfully complete the exam. During that year, you must also take any retests if necessary. The minimum time between two consecutive exam attempts is set at 48 hours.

Upon successfully completing the four different CET® exams, you can apply for your CET® title through ISACA®.

The various CET® exams are theoretical exams that require a substantial amount of factual knowledge. This means that a significant amount of time must be dedicated to exam preparation after the course. The mentioned amount of self-study for exam preparation is a minimum. The actual workload may be higher and varies greatly from person to person.
