The GGI program, powered by DeakinCo., will provide the knowledge and tools that business owners, executives and directors can immediately put into practice to lead with confidence and the suite of credentials will assess and recognise skills critical to a governance professional. As you progress through the course, you will be required to complete tasks based on the learning in order to collect evidence you can use for your credential submission. You will be asked to provide real life examples and evidence of experience – in both video and written format – to demonstrate your skills.
 The credentials can be earned individually or together as a suite called Governance Practice.
