Practice Exam

On your last course day, you will take an extensive CRISC practice exam, so that you can judge for yourself to what extent you are ready for the official ISACA CRISC certification exam and to which domains you should pay more attention.

ISACA CRISC® Certification Exam

Because we are an Accredited Training Partner, you can purchase an ISACA® exam voucher from us for €595 ex VAT. Would you rather arrange this yourself through ISACA®? You can do so via the ISACA® website. In this case the exam fee is $575 for ISACA® members and $760 for non-ISACA® members.

When you register for an exam, you are given one year to successfully complete the exam. Any possible retakes have to be done during this year as well. The time between two consecutive exam attempts is set at a minimum of 48 hours.

Upon successful completion of the CRISC exam, you can apply for your ISACA CRISC certification title. Note that in addition to passing the exam, you need to have enough working experience in cybersecurity to earn your ISACA CRISC certificate (experience waivers are available for a maximum of two years).

The CRISC exam requires in-depth theoretical knowledge. As an information security manager, you must understand all the domains covered – not just to pass your exam, but also to bring value to your organisation’s information security. In addition to attending this (or any other) CRISC exam training, you will need to invest a good portion of your time in self-study to excel at your exam and your career in information security management. The recommended self-study time is a minimum. You may need significantly more self-study time depending on your personal situation.
