This course features a deep dive into the five domains of ISACA CISA: the Process of Auditing Information Systems, IT Governance and Management, Information Systems Acquisition, Development and Implementation, Information Systems Operations, Maintenance and Support, and Protection of Information Assets. We’ll also make sure you’re completely prepared to pass the CISA certification exam so you can walk away with this industry-leading security credential.

While there aren’t any formal prerequisites to take the ISACA CISA training course itself, it is recommended that candidates have a minimum of 5 years of professional information systems auditing experience.

This is a 5-day course.

Individuals who hold the PMP certification will earn 32 PDUs through the course.

You’ll get a course book, practice ISACA CISA exam questions, and an exam voucher. Of course, your tuition also includes priceless group activities, as well as discussions and bagels.

Short answer: Yes. ISACA CISA certification will qualify you for IAT Level 3. If you’d like more information on DoD 8570 and the various training options for compliance, check out our DoD 8570 overview.

Our ISACA CISA bootcamp is designed for experienced information security professionals that would like to explore Internal Auditor, Public Accounting Auditor, Information Security Analyst, Network Operation Security Engineer, IT Audit Manager, Cybersecurity Professional, IT Risk and Assurance Manager or IT Consulting positions. That said, it’s a good course for anyone interested in learning more about the five domains, sitting for the ISACA CISA certification exam, and/or satisfying the DoD 8140/8570 training requirements.

The ISACA CISA exam consists of a maximum of 150 multiple choice questions, to be completed within 240 minutes. A passing score is 450 or higher (on a scale of 200 – 800).

You’ll receive an exam voucher from your instructor while you’re in class. You’ll use that voucher to sit for the exam at a PSI testing center. You’ll take the exam on a computer (not paper), and you’ll see immediately whether you passed or failed, though you won’t get your exact score until a week or so later. If you pass, you’ll get instructions on what to do next.

To maintain certification status, the ISACA CISA continuing professional education (CPE) policy requires continuing professional education activities. For more information, check out Maintain Your CISA.


This domain focuses on the development and implementation of a risk-based IT audit strategy; planning audits, and conducting audits in accordance with IT audit standards; reporting audit findings and making recommendations; and conducting follow-ups or preparing status reports.

In this session of our ISACA CISA training, the focus is on evaluating the effectiveness of the IT governance structure; evaluating IT organizational structure and human resources management; evaluating an organization’s IT policies, standards, and procedures; evaluating the adequacy of the quality management system; evaluating IT management and the monitoring of controls; evaluating risk management practices; and evaluating an organization’s business continuity plan.

We’ll take an in-depth look at how to evaluate business cases for proposed investments in information; evaluate project management practices and controls; conduct reviews to determine if a project is progressing according to project plans; evaluate controls for information systems; evaluate the readiness of information systems for implementation and production migration; and conduct post implementation systems reviews.

This component of the ISACA CISA training takes a look at conducting periodic information systems reviews; evaluating service level management practices; evaluating third-party management practices; evaluating data administration practices; evaluating the use of capacity and performance monitoring tools and techniques, and evaluating change, configuration, and release management practices.

The emphasis of this domain is on evaluation. We’ll take a look at information security processes, standards and procedures; the design, implementation, and monitoring of system and logical security; the design, implementation, and monitoring of physical access and environmental controls; and the processes and procedures used to store, retrieve, transport, and dispose of information assets.

Why Beyond20

How We Teach

People learn differently, so we use a variety of methods to teach concepts throughout the course. In addition to exam preparation and practice quizzes, you'll engage in round-table discussions, group exercises, and games designed to give practical context to the concepts. We take this approach not only because it's more interesting and fun than simply memorizing vocabulary, but because it works.

All of our instructors are experienced practitioners with real world cyber security expertise. (Real experience, too. Like, former-CIO-level experience.)

We're a US-based organization with offices in DC, Phoenix, and San Diego.

Industry-Leading Course Materials

All of our courseware is reviewed multiple times a year to ensure it's up to date, in line with best practice standards, and effective! We incorporate feedback from students to constantly improve our course books, in-class activities, and (sorry) homework. The goal is to provide you with the tools to not only get you through class and pass the exam, but also to have a reliable reference when you get back to the office.

We don't just teach to the exam (though we certainly do that), we also give you practical and personalized tools you can take back to work.

We're a Registered Education Provider with PMI, so if you're PMP Certified, the course will earn you PDUs!
