Boardroom Readiness Training For Qualified Technology Experts (QTE's)

Being a technology executive is one thing. Being certified as a Boardroom Ready Qualified Technology Expert (QTE), is another.

When the SEC defined boardroom Qualified Financial Expert (QFE) as part of The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 they used a competency-based approach. We've applied that blueprint to define what it means to be a board Qualified Technology Expert (QTE) and designed and built the only boardroom readiness training program focused on preparing technology executives for their expanding role in the corporate boardroom. Being certified as a Boardroom Ready Qualified Technology Expert requires executive management experience and/or education in one or more domains in complex digital business systems.  

QTE training is more than talking heads and panels. It's the only executive education experience designed, built and taught by leading academics and experts in corporate and digital governance. Participants will walk away with the tools and confidence they need to effectively contribute in the corporate boardroom. Those who sit for and pass the QTE Certification exam will be QTE Certified. 

The one-day QTE 501 Boardroom Readiness class covers: 

  • The foundations of corporate governance and the role of the corporate director
  • Key trends, changes and current issues in corporate governance
  • Leading practices in systemic risk oversight in complex digital systems
  • Communications issues and approaches on digital and cybersecurity risk in the boardroom
  • Developments in digital and cyber governance regulation
  • Boardroom compensation, director legal issues, and board resumes 

At the conclusion of class, QTE Certification is available through a comprehensive examination. Give us one-day, and we'll make you a Boardroom Ready QTE. Go to our Courses & Events page for dates and to register for an open class.
