This COBIT 2019 Foundation certification course provides students with a comprehensive understanding of COBIT 2019’s best practices, tools, and key principles. This includes the various elements that distinguish COBIT 2019 from COBIT 5. 

IT does not exist in a vacuum! Rather, it must be fully optimized to suit the needs of the business it supports, whether in terms of long-term goals, daily functions, or anything else. Moreover, it must also help users to avoid the modern pitfalls associated with non-compliance, which can be disastrous both economically and for customer relations. 

This course will leave students fully prepared to sit and pass the COBIT 2019 Foundation certification exam. This will enable them to move on to higher certification levels, which look more closely at implementing the COBIT 2019 framework. 


This module outlines the features, learning plans, aims, objectives, and structure of the course. Students will be given a glossary, diagram pack, and syllabus, as well as a list of further reading and links they can use to download the necessary COBIT 2019 publications.
