The LA ISACA Chapter provides four Saturday (total 24 hours) sessions for the exam preparation but they are not intended to be basic teaching sessions.  The candidates should have proper educational background in all of the subject areas.  The sessions are designed to review the five domains that comprise the CRISC examination and to clarify the more difficult material.The sessions will include lectures and discussions with time for questions raised by the participants.

NOTE:  This review course is intended to assist participants in their preparation for the exam.  However, there is no guarantee that completion of the course will ensure passage of the examination.
