The COBIT® 5 Assessor 3-day certification course is practitioner-level training that focuses on how to apply the COBIT 5 Process Assessment Model (PAM) and how to analyse the results. The assessment results provide a determination of process capability and can be used for process improvement, delivering value to the business, measuring the achievement of current or projected business goals, benchmarking, consistent reporting and organisational compliance.
Upon successful completion of the Assessor course and exam and upon meeting specific knowledge requirements, candidates are able to apply to ISACA to be designated as a COBIT Certified Assessor. This designation is the only globally accepted certification for COBIT assessors. COBIT 5 Certified Assessors are highly competent IT and business professionals who have been trained in performing COBIT-based IT process assessments and have experience in planning, building, running and/or monitoring IT processes. COBIT 5 Certified Assessors are able to provide reliable, consistent and repeatable assessments of IT process capabilities—which helps IT leaders gain C-level and board member buy-in for change and improvement initiatives.
