Integrated Governance & Oversight Professional (IGOP)

The Integrated Governance & Oversight Professional (IGOP) certification demonstrates that you have the knowledge and skill to constrain, conscribe, direct and control an organization or organizational entity.

This certification is currently under development. We actively seek members with an All Access Pass to beta test the essential body of knowledge, preparation course, and exam.

Beta testers give their time and feedback. Beta testers get free cohort learning with OCEG Founder, Scott Mitchell, early certification and reduced passing grade for the exam.

Please register for early access if you have time and interest to help!

What is the IGOP?

The Integrated Governance & Oversight Professional (IGOP) certification offers the most comprehensive, modern, and versatile certification program for audit and assurance.

The IGOP uniquely integrates the principles and practices from departments and teams such as:

This diverse and interdisciplinary approach ensures that you have the skills to provide governance and oversight throughout the organization.

  • We made this certification something that every professional can use. It is perfect for you whether you are a new member of an internal oversight committee or board, or an experienced team member in some other department who wants to learn how to provide oversight.
