How to Start a TDT
Step 1: Identify a chapter champion. This person will recruit fellow chapter members to join the TDT, organize TDT activities, and serve as the chapter liaison with IIA Global headquarters.
Step 2: Recruit certified individuals to join the TDT. TDTs should comprise 6-24 members. Members must already be certified (i.e., CIA, CGAP, CFSA, CCSA, and CRMA) to write questions for these exams. However, no previous writing experience is needed.
Step 3: Contact The IIA at email@example.com to start your TDT. Training and resources will be provided. Each member will be required to sign a nondisclosure agreement and is prohibited from engaging in exam training or preparation while part of the program and for three years afterward.
Step 4: TDT members write exam questions individually in response to writing assignments from IIA Global.
Step 5: TDT members meet every 1-3 months in person or virtually to review and improve their questions as a group. The chapter champion should coordinate the TDT meetings and ensure that submitted items follow item writer guidelines and are submitted in the required format and template.
Step 6: Receive CPE credits for accepted items. The IIA will conduct a multi-step internal review of all items submitted to ensure that they meet specified requirements. Please allow 90 days to receive feedback and notification of whether items were accepted..
