 CIA Exam


As The IIA’s premier designation for more than 40 years, the CIA sets the standard for excellence within the profession. The CIA journey begins with a focus on The IIA’s International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards) and aspects of mandatory guidance under the IPPF. The journey continues with a focus on managing an internal audit project and culminates with concepts related to internal control, risk, governance, and technology. The CIA is a 3-part process for establishing your foundational core and starting point for career growth to:

  • Distinguish you from your peers.
  • Demonstrate your proficiency with internal staff and external clients.
  • Develop your knowledge of best practices in the industry.
  • Demonstrate your proficiency and professionalism.
  • Lay a foundation for continued improvement and advancement.
