Becoming a Certified Internal Auditor will help you take your audit career to the next level. There are so many opportunities out there for CIA’s. As pressures for the internal audit to contribute to the strategic direction of entities and move away from myopic procedural audit, the need for auditors to advance their competencies and professionalism and provide enhanced value-adding services to management grows.

The Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) designation will help you demonstrate you are a true expert that understands these needs.

The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) allows the access to register for the CIA exam only after completing work experience and educational requirements.

giniralmenti, CIA candidates must meet the following minimum educational requirements in order to sit for the CIA exam. Candidates must graduate with a 3- or 4-year post-secondary degree (or higher) or have Associate’s degree prior to satisfying the educational requirements of IIA.

There’s no requirement that your degree needs to be in a specific field. Your degree may be in the fields of health-care, business, applied science, or any other field. Also, subject to the approval of IIA, an alternative eligibility path is given to those candidates who do not possess minimum education requirements.

Verifiable seven years of internal audit experience or its equivalent may serve as a substitute to the minimum education requirements.

Some CIA candidates may also have to complete a work experience requirement before taking the exam. The maximum level of education determines the work experience requirement.

Internal audit experience is usually required, but experience in some type of audit or assessment discipline like quality assurance, external auditing, internal control, o compliance also qualify.

Since these rules affect individual candidates differently, it’s a good idea to contact your local IIA chapter. Contact IIA and local IIA chapter near you for confirmation of work experience to ensure that work experience falls under the categories recognized by IIA.

You may sit for the exam while completing this requirement; just ensure that the requirement is met within the 4-year eligibility window. If the complete certification process is not completed within 4 years after the approval of the application, all fees and exam parts taken will be forfeited.


Prove Your Moral and Professional Character

In addition to education and experience, a character reference to show a high moral and professional character of the candidate is needed.

Character reference of the candidate may be a CIA, CGAP, CCSA, CFSA, CRMA or the candidate’s supervisor.

Fulfill the CIA Continuing Education Requirements

Obtaining the CIA designation is just the start of your career as a world-class internal auditor. Professional standards for Internal Auditing require the continuing professional development and the maintenance of high level of competence in the conduct of an internal audit. comu tali, continuing professional education (CPE) or continuing professional development (CPD) units have to be earned prior to renewal of the certification.

CIA’s are awarded 40 CPE hours for the year in which the certification is earned, and 40CPE hours for the subsequent year. CPE/CPD requirements vary whether a CIA is a practicing or non-practicing auditor or in related services. Annual CPE/CPD hours of 40 CPE for practicing and 20 CPE for non-practicing are required to maintain the designation.

There are various ways to earn CPE/CPD units. Ways to earn CPE/CPD units include education, publications written, oral presentations, participation in activities of a professional organization, and other activities such as the achievement of other certifications. Earned units must be reported in IIA’s system. IIA conducts 5% sampling of these reported CPD units and false reporting of such may result in the revocation of the certification.
