2017 Certification Application, Registration, and CPE Reporting Fees Will Increase as of April 1, 2017

The ability to securely deliver IIA certification and qualification exams worldwide through Computer Basted Testing (CBT) is based on our successful partnership with Pearson VUE and robust internal and external business systems.

Certified individuals and certification candidates (members and nonmembers) will experience an increase for application, registration, and continued professional education (CPE) fees, effective April 1, 2017.

There are several factors contributing to the decision to increase certification fees:

          Our certification vendor, Pearson VUE, will increase fees for candidate “seat time” (the amount of time allotted for candidate testing) at all Pearson VUE test centers. This is the first fee increase we have experienced from Pearson VUE since we began utilizing their test centers in 2008.

          Based on market demand, our certification portfolio has expanded significantly over the last several years. In the last 3 years we launched the CRMA, QIAL, and Internal Audit Practitioner programs; and acquired the BEAC Certification programs (CPEA and CPSA). These additions to the global portfolio have been funded on the original business model.

          The IIA continues to invest in the security of our certification portfolio to secure exam content on a global basis.  This investment in securing our intellectual property ensures the rigor, credibility, and reputation of the certification programs.

While investigating the fee increase, The IIA compared the new fees against other organizations and determined that IIA Global certification fees are in line with industry fees.
