THE CERTIFIED INTERNAL AUDITOR (CIA)

Candidates leave the program enriched with educational experience, information, and business tools that can be applied immediately in any organization or business environment.

Through the The IIA’s online Certification Candidate Management System (CCMS), candidates may apply/register for certification programs/exams and access their records online.
The Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) exam tests a candidate’s knowledge of current internal auditing practices and understanding of internal audit issues, risks and remedies. The exam is offered in four parts, each part consisting of 100 multiple-choice questions.
