QIAL Study Resources

All parts of the QIAL program are self-study and do not require a prescribed curriculum. Candidates may choose their own method of preparing or practicing for the case studies, presentation, and panel interview.

QIAL Case Studies Sample Guide

This sample guide provides candidates with representative examples of the type and length of content that you might expect to find on a current case study. Included in the guide are sample materials from case studies 1, 2, and 3 and an excerpt model response for each. The scenarios and content are not the same as what will appear on the actual case study exams.

To request a copy of the sample guide, submit and purchase the QIAL Case Studies Sample Guide form in the Certification Candidate Management System (CCMS).

QIAL Resources - Preparing for the Case Studies

To support your preparations for the QIAL, The IIA has developed an informational resource list for your consideration.  Download the resource guide.

QIAL Study System

The Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA‒United Kingdom and Ireland) has developed a QIAL online study system that combines user-friendly functionality with access to study texts, case studies, and other resources, such as podcasts and a collaborative “wiki.”

  • You will have access to a tutor who will assist you in your preferred areas of study. You can contact your tutor with questions.
  • The learning resources are interactive. Podcasts, videos, and case studies will make learning stimulating, rather than a chore.
  • You can contact other QIAL students via online forums to share and discuss ideas and issues.
  • The learning system offers the flexibility to study on your own schedule.
