How to Get Trained and Certified for CISA

Are you ready to prepare yourself for the CISA exam? Well, you’ll find out quickly that there are a tremendous number of ways to get to the goal. First, take an honest inventory of the type of learner you are, how quickly you need to accomplish this goal, if you must have a high level of assurance you’ll pass, and others. Some of which follow.

  1. Instructor-Led Certification Bootcamp (physical or virtual-live)
  2. Self-Paced eLearning
  3. Self-Study
  4. Persistent Training Environment

327 Solutions is the ONLY ISACA Authorized ATO that delivers the complete ISACA learning kit (Authorized Review Manual, QAE Exam Review Questions, Testing Voucher, and ISACA Membership) that uses a Persistent Learning Environment (PTE). What is a PTE?

A PTE is a hybrid of human, technology, and self-directed methods to continue learning if a student is not ready to take the exam immediately. Of course, many students can pass the CISA exam after our training, but those who need some additional hand-holding through coaching will get it.

You see, many vendors advertise 94% or 97% passing rates of higher. For starters, that’s not truthful, so shame on the industry. Initial exam passing rates in the cyber/risk training industry average just under 80%, and that’s good. They don’t tell you that after training if you fail, you can “retake the class at no charge” as part of their certification guarantee. So yes, after taking the class 2x, 3x, 4x times, you’ll likely pass and become part of that lucky ~95%+.

We think that’s a terrible waste of time, so instead, we developed our custom Persistent Training Environment (PTE). We deliver a fantastic Authorized Instructor-Led BootCamp (like the rest), but that’s where most stop and 327 Solutions starts. We also record your training event, program it into a modular eLearning experience (exclusive to 327), post it to our custom PTE system giving you 3-months of unlimited training access (exclusive to 327). Lastly, we coach you on the exam for three weeks (a 327 exclusive). That’s an extra 12-hours of training, and exam coaching focused on YOU at no additional charge to ensure passing the exam.

327 Solutions has a 100% Certification Guarantee. So if you attend our training, take part in our coaching, and fail the exam, which is very unlikely in our PTE, you are coached until you pass the exam with an assigned certification agent. So nobody gets left behind at 327 Solutions, ever, 100% of the time.
