The COBIT® Foundation course is a 2-day, interactive, classroom-based learning experience. Participants learn about the need for an IT control framework and how COBIT® addresses this need by providing a globally accepted IT governance and control framework. This course explains the elements and supporting materials of the COBIT® framework using a logical and example-driven approach for everyone interested in obtaining Foundation-level knowledge of COBIT®.


A wide range of business managers, IT management consultants, IT governance professionals, and auditors who wish to gain a better understanding of COBIT and what it can provide to their organization


At the end of this course, participants will gain competencies in:

  • Identifying how IT management issues affect organizations.
  • Recognizing the need for a control framework driven by the need for IT governance.
  • Understanding the principles of IT governance, how IT governance helps address IT management issues, and who should be responsible for IT governance.

The course explains how other standards and frameworks complement COBIT®: ITIL v3, ISO/IEC 38500, ISO/IEC 27002, COSO, Implementation Guide, IT Assurance Guide, Security Baseline, and Val IT 2.0


Scenario-driven learning has always been one of the key success factors of the COBIT® Foundation course, as it puts participants in the right mindset to apply the principles of COBIT® in real life. The new case study takes this into account and builds on it by:

  • Providing more business-focused challenges through situations and cases.
  • Presenting a real-world connect using situations that can occur in the day-to-day life of participants.
  • Discussing the application of COBIT® with others.
  • The course includes an Exam Preparation module, preparing participants to take on the COBIT® Foundation exam on the third day of the course.
  • The exam is in closed-book format, with 40 multiple-choice questions. The pass score is 70% (28 out of 40 questions). The exam lasts for 60 minutes.
