Why we picked Dilijan, Armenia: Dilijan is a resort town with mild climate, fresh air in the northeast of Yerevan. It is famous for its amazing surroundings, called the “Armenian Switzerland” by the locals, due to the densely forested valleys and mountains with alpine meadows around. It is an excellent center for walking.
Dilijan is also developing financial center for future, where is located the training center of the Central Bank of Armenian.
Nearest airport to Dilijan is the Zvartnots International airport in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia.
Yerevan is only few hours by air from many centers of commerce and European and Asian capitals. Since many cities in Asia, Middle-East, and Europe cannot afford to organize CISA exam review classes (nearest one is Brussels, Belgium, and then New York City, USA), we decided to pick a place which is central geographically as well as beautiful, relaxing, and economical.
And we picked Jay Ranade as the instructor, who has been teaching ISACA classes in New York City since 2005 to come to Dilijan and teach the first class.
