​IIA-Certified Individuals Have Until Dec. 31 to Report CPE Credits

Every year, individuals who hold certifications or qualifications earned from The IIA must report CPE/CPD credits earned by year’s end to remain active.

In North America, IIA certificants must report 40 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits earned in support of the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) credential, and 20 hours for specialty certifications, including the Certification in Control Self-Assessment (CCSA), Certified Financial Services Auditor (CFSA), Certified Government Auditing Professional (CGAP), and Certification in Risk Management Assurance (CRMA). Individuals who hold the Qualification in Internal Audit Leadership (QIAL) must report Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits earned.

All IIA-certified individuals are required to earn two of their CPE/CPD credits in ethics. To help with this requirement, The IIA is offering Ethics for Internal Auditors and Code of Ethics Conformance through OnDemand training. Participants can save on the OnDemand courses when purchased as part of The IIA’s Ethics Essentials course bundle.

Certificants must report credits earned by Dec. 31, 2019, unless the certification itself was earned in 2019. CPE/CPD reporting for IIA members in North America and the Caribbean is free. IIA members who reside outside North America should check with their local affiliate for CPE reporting guidelines and pricing.

All individuals who have earned an IIA certification and maintain it by reporting CPE/CPD are eligible to opt in to The IIA Certification Registry. This up-to-date record provides an opportunity for employers and recruiters to verify your certification. The registry will only include the following: certification holder’s first and last name; certificate ID; certification status; country of residence. Inclusion in the registry is voluntary.
