IGCAP: The IGCA Professional Certifications

The International Governance and Compliance Professional (IGCAP) certifications ensure that an individual has the skills and technical knowledge required to perform the duties of a governance-related officer, risk manager and compliance officer, or internal auditor role within an organisation.

IGCAP is the foundation for all of our other certifications. These certifications are suitable for every compliance, risk, finance and internal audit professional operating within a regulated environment.
