Obtaining a CRISC certification is now rather straightforward, courses are not necessarily a need but as an individual only has to pass the administered exam. To qualify for taking the exam we must have at least five or more years of business experience and at least three years of experience working in the risk and information systems control field. If we have this king of experience working in the field we can apply to take the test which lasts for a full four hours. Once the exam is passed by the candidate then the individual must apply for certification with the demonstrated test results.

The CRISC certified course covers five different areas of important known as domains. It is necessary to pass each domain of course in order to pass the exam and to receive the certificate. These five domains are:

  • Risk identification, assessment and evolution
  • Risk response
  • Risk monitoring
  • IS control design and implementation
  • IS control monitoring and maintenance

The score of 450 is considered as passing on the 200 question test. We are able to take the test again should us not receive the grade we were looking for although we will need to pay the exam fee again, so it is highly recommended to put in the necessary study time to prepare ourselves for the course.

The CRISC is administered by the Information System Adult and Control Association (ISACA). In addition to the varying CISC certifications, ISACA also provides several other certifications including the Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT, Control objectives for Information and Related Technology, Certified in Risk and Information Systems control and Cyber security Nexus Practitioner. Depending on our current IT job and where we may want to go in the future, additional ISACA certifications may prove of value to us and our current or future employer.

What One Need to Know About Training?

The five years’ experience as a business professional and three years’ experience working with the risk and information systems control spectrum should provide favourable insights into what will be on the test and should prepare us. However, fine-tuning our knowledge and going over what specifies will be on the exam is helpful and improve the chances of passing.

Available E-learning and virtual training should be taken advantage of to prepare ourselves for the exam. Due to the cost of the test and the need to pay the exam fee again should we need to take the test over, avoiding paying for the exam several times over is favourable.

How do We Pass the CRISC Exam at the First Attempt?

We recommend the following actions:

  • Check that we have the relevant three years of work experience to qualify.
  • Register and schedule our exam direct with ISACA.
  • Purchase the official ISACA study guides and textbooks.
  • Plan a self-study programme that covers all the key knowledge domains of this course.
  • Attend an exam preparation training course a few days before we shit the exam.
