​IIA Announces Key Updates to CIA Certification Exam

The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) announces important updates to the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) Examination. This three-part exam is designed to test candidates’ knowledge, skills, and abilities related to current global internal audit practices.

To ensure the exam’s content remains current and valid, the CIA underwent a job analysis study, with The IIA reaching out to candidates, certification holders, academics, experienced internal audit professionals, and other stakeholders around the world to determine the knowledge, skills, and abilities most relevant to today’s internal audit professionals.

Results of the study confirmed the need to revise the exam syllabi to reflect the evolution of the internal audit profession worldwide.

Launched in 1974, the CIA exam is administered in more than 800 testing facilities in more than 150 countries and territories around the world.
