Interested in furthering your professional internal auditing credentials?

There are many reasons to earn an official IIA certification designation. Whether it's the hallmark designation of internal audit - the Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) designation - or one of The IIA's four specialty industry certifications, obtaining a certification is professionalism defined.

The IIA offer the following professional certifications for practitioners seeking to showcase their knowledge and commitment to internal auditing:

The Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) certification is the only globally recognised internal audit certification. Becoming a CIA is the optimum way to communicate knowledge, skills, and competencies needed to effectively carry out professional responsibilities for any internal audit, anywhere in the world.

The Certification in Risk Management Assurance® (CRMA®) is the only risk management assurance certification for internal auditors. The CRMA demonstrates their ability to focus on strategic risks, ensure and enhance value to their organisation through risk assurance on core business processes, and educate management and the audit committee on risk and risk management concepts.

The Internal Audit Practitioner® programme is a way for new and rotational auditors to quickly demonstrate internal audit aptitude as they endeavor to take the first step on their journey into internal auditing.
