Course Description

Awarding Body: Internal Audit Practitioner

"WE DO NOT JUST TRAIN YOU TO PASS EXAMS - WE TRAIN YOU TO BECOME A PROFESSIONAL AUDITOR"

The Internal Audit Practitioner program is offered by The IIA and provides separate recognition and status for candidates who successfully complete and pass the CIA Part One exam. 

The Internal Audit Practitioner program is the initial key to professional success, opening doors for career opportunities, and earning candidates increased credibility and respect within their profession and organization.

 

For most, it is an important stepping stone towards completion of the full CIA or of those specialty certifications that require completion of the CIA Part One exam as a co-requisite (currently CRMA). It is also a desirable minimum achievement for those who are likely to be in internal auditing for two years or less.

How long is the CIA Part 1 exam

The CIA Part One exam consists of 125 questions. Candidates will have 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete the exam.

What do I have to do to retain my recognition?

Internal Audit Practitioners will be awarded 2 years of CPE.   At the end of the two years, you can report CPE once to keep your designation active for 12 additional months.  At the end of the 3rd full year of holding the Internal Audit Practitioner, the designation will automatically expire.

For example if you earn the Internal Audit Practitioner on 1 June 2015, your first CPE report is due on or before 31 December 2017.  After that, your designation will expire at the end of 2018. 

What if I earn a certified status in the CIA or CRMA programs?

If you complete the CIA program (pass all three parts of the CIA exam) or obtain the CRMA, your Internal Audit Practitioner designation will automatically expire.

Why does my designation expire after three years?

The Internal Audit Practitioner is not designed to be held indefinitely.This program is designed to accommodate those that will only be in the professional for a short amount of time, and those that do not yet have enough experience to enter the full CIA program.  As such, the designation will expire after 3 full calendar years.

Will candidates receive certification?

The Internal Audit Practitioner program is not a certification program.  The program is intended to recognize candidates who successfully complete the CIA Part One exam and are approved for the program.

Will I receive a paper certificate?

?No, individuals that earn the Internal Audit Practitioner designation will not receive a paper certificate.  Instead, you will receive a digital badge that represents your achievement.  Candidates will be able to display their recognition through social badging. Social badging allows holders of IIA qualifications to digitally display their credentials on social and professional networking sites at no cost to the candidate
