Now Testing: Certification in Risk Management Assurance™ (CRMA®) Core Exam
The Certification in Risk Management Assurance™ (CRMA®), introduced in August of 2011 has garnered overwhelming interest from auditors and others within the global business community working in the risk management arena. More than 13,300 individuals have been awarded the CRMA through Professional Experience Recognition (PER) during the North American and Global offering periods, which ended Dec. 31, 2012 and March 31, 2013, respectively, and nearly 400 individuals participated in the introductory offering of the exam that ended Aug. 31.
When asked why she pursued CRMA certification, Sharon T. Grant, CIA, CRMA, CPA, managing director of corporate audits at United Airlines in Chicago and president of The Institute of Internal Auditors Research Foundation responded, “This is an exciting time to be in the internal auditing profession, and a key driver of our role is assessing and evaluating risk. I felt acquiring the CRMA provides a level of assurance to our management, audit committee, and other stakeholders that affirms my experience and proficiency in this area.”
Registration for the traditional offering of the CRMA core exam began Sept. 1 with exam sessions opening on Oct 1. The CRMA core exam contains 100 questions covering four domains of knowledge to be completed within a two-hour testing period. Additionally, candidates must successfully pass Part 1 of the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) exam, which tests knowledge of the basic concepts of risk and controls, as well as The IIA’s International Professional Practices Framework. The CRMA is The IIA’s first specialty certification to require Part 1 of the CIA as a co-requisite.
