The CIA qualification, awarded by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), is the only globally accepted certification for internal auditors and remains a standard by which individuals can demonstrate their competence, professionalism and ethics in the field of internal auditing.
Earning the CIA designation is a valuable accomplishment and a professional advantage for auditors at all stages of their careers, including chief audit executives, audit managers, audit staff, and risk management staff, as well as students enrolled in an accounting or other business or financial degree program. The CIA designation is the best way for auditing professionals to communicate to the world that they are prepared to meet today’s challenges.
There are three papers that candidates should pass:
- Part I, Internal Audit Basics: 125 MCQs to be completed in 2.5 hours
- Part II, Internal Audit Practice: 100 MCQs to be completed in 2 hours
- Part III, Internal Audit Knowledge Elements: 100 MCQs to be completed in 2 hours
The training will be a combination of classroom sessions, practice questions and homework / assignments. The classroom sessions will include review sessions based on participants feedback and performance in the exercises and assignments. For each part, participants will go through a mock exam where they will be put in a similar testing environment when they take the actual test and their results will be marked. Also participants will be provided with tools and techniques that support them in passing the exam (exam techniques, memory techniques and handling exam pressure).
