Solo Writing vs. Team Writing

Item writers have two options:

  1. Write independently, OR
  2. Join an item writing group at their chapter. Click here to learn more about chapter opportunities.

For individual writers, Item Writing Sessions are conducted monthly. Writers receive an email at the beginning of each month focused on specific areas of the CIA exams, and they have 30 days from the time of the invitation to write and submit items related to the requested topics. Writers may choose whether or not to participate, depending on topics of interest and expertise. However, The IIA requests a commitment to submit a minimum of 15 items during the course of the year.

Apply to Become an Individual Item Writer

Please complete and submit the application form below, or fax a printed copy to +1-407-937-1313. You will be contacted by one of our exam development staff members within 3-5 business days.

Interested writers will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement. The agreement also includes copyright infringement, and confidentiality of the items written. Please note that exam writers cannot teach exam preparation courses or be a review provider.
