The IIA Certification Registry 

Demonstrate Your Credential With The IIA Certification Registry

The IIA is excited to announce the development of The IIA Certification Registry. The IIA Certification Registry is an up-to-date record of individuals who have earned an IIA certification and maintain it by reporting continuing professional education (CPE) to keep their credential active. All IIA active certification holders who choose to voluntarily opt-in will be included in the registry, which will be launched in 2020. This is an opportunity for employers and recruiters to verify your certification.

The IIA Standards require continuing professional education (CPE) of all internal auditors. The IIA’s Professional Certification Board requires all certification holders to complete and report CPE annually so their certifications remain in good standing. Individuals who do not meet the annual CPE requirement will not be included in The IIA Certification Registry nor claim the certification status.

What information is included in The IIA Certification Registry?

The certification registry will only include the following information:

  • Certification holder’s first and last name
  • Certificate ID
  • Certification status
  • Country of residence

No personal contact information, such as email, physical address, or phone number, will be included in the registry. Inclusion in the registry is voluntary. If you have an active certification and choose not to be listed in the certification registry, your information will not be included. Certified individuals can opt-in to the certification registry when reporting CPE in 2018. Additional opt-in opportunities will be available when The IIA Certification Registry is launched in 2020.
