Certified Japanese Sarbanes Oxley Expert (CJSOXE) Distance Learning and Online Certification Program

J-SOX is the unofficial term that refers to Japan’s Financial Instruments and Exchange Law, that was promulgated by the Japanese National Diet in June 2006. J-SOX refers to other laws, guidelines and standards as well.

All public companies listed on the stock exchanges in Japan are required to prepare and submit internal control reports on a consolidated basis, for fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2008.

The reach of J-SOX extends to subsidiaries outside Japan (in the USA and Europe for example), because the provisions apply to the company as a whole. The subsidiaries (outside Japan) are involved in the testing and documentation of internal processes and controls.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How comprehensive are the slides? Are they just bullet points?

Answer: The slides are not just bullet points, you can read them, understand and learn. But, they are not a book. These are the official slides we use in our instructor led classes.

2. Do I need to buy books to pass the exam?

Answer: No. If you study the slides carefully, you can pass the exam. If you fail the first time, you must study more. Print the slides and use Post-it to attach notes like "COSO" "Operational Risk" etc. to know where to find the answer of the material you do not remember.

3. Is it an open book exam? Why?

Answer: Yes, it is an open book exam. Risk and compliance management is not something you have to memorize, it is something you have to understand.

4. Do I have to sit for the exam soon after receiving the presentations?

Answer: No. You can sit for the exam from your office or home any time in the future. We will create an online account that never expires.

5. Do I have to spend more money in the future to remain certified? Does the certification lose its value after some time?

Answer: No. Your certificate never expires. It will be valid without the need to spend money or to sit for another exam in the future.

6. Ok, the certificate never expires, but things change.

Answer: If a university degree never expires, why should our certificates expire? Yes, things change, and this is the reason you need to become a member of the association. You will receive a monthly newsletter with updates, alerts and opportunities to stay current. There is no cost for that.

7. How many hours do I need to study in order to pass the exam?

Answer: It depends on your knowledge and experience. You must study the presentations carefully. You must go through the slides another time, and ensure you have learned the details. It takes 20-26 hours (average).

9. Why should I get certified?

Answer: After the failures of so many organizations during the crisis and the risk that shareholders may sue senior management and the board of directors for gross negligence, firms hire "fit and proper" professionals that provide evidence that they are qualified.

Organizations need assurance that employees have the knowledge and skills needed to mitigate risks and to accept more responsibility. Supervisors and auditors ask for independent evidence that the process owners are qualified, and that the controls can operate as designed because the persons responsible for these controls have the necessary knowledge and experience.

The marketplace is clearly demanding qualified professionals in risk and compliance management. Certified professionals enjoy industry recognition, have more and better job opportunities, secure the best jobs, and make more money.

It is important to be certified and to belong to professional associations. You prove that you are somebody who cares, learns, and belongs to a global community of professionals.

10. Why should I choose your certification program?

Answer: It is always wise to investigate first. You may search for other Sarbanes Oxley training programs.

We strongly believe that our distance learning and online certification programs offer very good value for money:

1. You receive the training material (the official presentations of the instructor-led class).
