Certifications – IIA Atlanta Chapter:

The Atlanta Chapter encourages members to gain certification as part of the internal audit profession. Certification allows a deeper knowledge of internal auditing and is a valued credential showing your knowledge, motivation and commitment to quality in your work.  It does require preparation, focus and demonstrated experience to achieve the certifications offered by the IIA.  However, the benefits to your organization, clients and your own professional growth will be significantly enhanced as a result.

At the Atlanta Chapter of the IIA, we offer programs to assist those preparing for the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) designation. The CIA is the only globally accepted designation for internal auditing and sets the standard by which an auditor can demonstrate their professionalism and readiness to meet the challenges faced by today’s auditors. 

We also encourage you to review the IIA global website for additional certifications that include risk management, government auditing, internal audit leadership and other designations that focus upon specific areas of expertise within the auditing profession.  The Chapter strongly encourages the CIA certification and other designations as appropriate for your professional development and focus.

We want to recognize those members who have received their certifications from January 2016 - June 2016 and congratulate them on this accomplishment.  Below is a list of members where we received notice of certification issued during this time period. If you have received a designation, but are not listed below please contact us as we want to ensure the Chapter and your associates are all aware of your accomplishment​.
