Training Course Information

CISA/CISM Class of Fall/Winter 2018!

Let me take a moment to introduce myself – My name is Helen Zell and I am the ISACA CISA coordinator. I am excited to invite you to partake in our free fall training programs for either the CISA or CISM. These programs will consist of 7 sessions for the CISA or 5 sessions for the CISM, and will be guided by some of the best mentors we have in Colorado! Each week different IT professionals, who have passed the CISA or CISM exam, will teach a 4 hour long class at a designated facility.

1. Logistics
We will meet on Saturday (dates appear below) at 8:45 AM at the Deloitte office. The address is: 1601 Wewatta Street, Denver, CO 80202. Upon arriving in the Deloitte building lobby, you will be escorted up to our suite by a Deloitte representative. It is important to us to respect building management and the privacy of other tenants in the building. If you are late, please contact the Deloitte representative through the security guard in the lobby.

*Note: You can get a year or two older version of these manuals, but please note that approximate 10% of the content changes each year

4. Preparation
In preparation for every class please read the chapter we're planning to cover and have your questions ready for our mentors to help you with. Our mentors will provide an in-depth discussion of each domain, but you will need to put the majority of your effort studying outside the training program. In every class we will have a mentor covering a different domain and providing their own style of teaching. Some will focus on your questions, some on your test taking skills, some on Q&A from the CISA or CISM database - but all will do their best to provide you with guidance to pass your exam.

5. Contact
All mentors have my direct contact details (phone etc.) for anything you might need during class. However, in case you ever need it, my cell phone number is 314-707-7156. Each session, building management will have the contact information of a designated Deloitte personnel whom you can reach out to if you arrive late, need to leave to feed a parking meter, or need to leave and re-enter the building for any other reason. Here are the best contacts for each of the courses:
CISA: Helen Zell, email: hzell@deloitte.com, cell: 314-707-7156
CISM: Mike Pedrick (Instructor), email: mikepedrick47@gmail.com, cell: 720-810-7602

6. Participation
Anyone can drop in in our courses, but we like to get a general headcount of students prior to the sessions, so please send us an email prior to Monday 8/17 if you are interested in taking our course. Upon registering, you are not required to come to every session, but it is highly recommended that you come to as many as you can. Our training program has a pass rate of over 90% for both courses. We will also be emailing out a SurveyMonkey the Sunday prior to our Saturday sessions in order to get a more specific headcount for that particular session. We do this so that we can inform building management of the number of persons who will be accessing the building.

Good luck to us all and looking forward to seeing some of you in our training courses!
