Everything you need to know about the CRISC Certification

The certification requires prior knowledge of corporate risk and the design of risk-based IT system control. CRISC is one of the leading certifications for anyone who wants to prepare for real-world threats with tools to both evaluate and manage risk.

The CRISC certification is widely recognised as the first choice for experts in risk and IT system control or anyone who wants to build a career in the field.

How do I get my CRISC Certification?

To best prepare yourself for the demanding CRISC certification, you can take a 3-day course where you sit your exam on the last day of the course.

It will be an intense and inspirational experience where you will work with your expert instructor for 10-12 hours a day and live and learn in an immersed environment at the Readynez training centre.
