​The IIA Is Waiving CRMA Application Fee Through Dec. 31, 2021

As a core responsibility, The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) is focused on providing internal audit practitioners with opportunities to gain, strengthen, and showcase their risk management assurance capabilities with the newly updated Certification in Risk Management Assurance® (CRMA®).

To accomplish this, key changes are being made to the CRMA exam, which include:

  • Making all questions proficient level.
  • Incorporating a greater variety of question formats.
  • Extending seat time.

Additionally, changes are being made to the overall CRMA program, including expanding the prerequisites (an active CIA® is now required, as opposed to just passing CIA Part 1), and making the required work experience more robust.

The collective effect of these changes will help to remove ambiguity between the CIA and CRMA designations and empower practitioners to showcase their advanced risk management assurance acumen.

As the only risk management assurance certification for internal auditors, the CRMA focuses on the key elements to unlocking internal audit’s full potential, and validates one’s ability to provide advice and assurance on risk management to audit committees and executive management.

You can apply into the new program and register for the exam now. Testing starts in October.

Learn more about the CRMA program and take advantage of free application through Dec. 31, 2021.
