Earning the CRMA Is on the Road After CIA

CRMA DriveAs the only risk management assurance certification for internal auditors, The IIA’s Certification in Risk Management Assurance® (CRMA®) program has been updated to reflect the in-depth organizational knowledge and advanced skill sets that are required to provide effective risk management assurance to audit committees and executive management.

Significant changes were made to the overall program, including expanding the prerequisites and making the required work experience more robust. For example, an active CIA® is now required. View an interactive demonstration of the question types included in the new CRMA exam. The new exam is offered in English only.

Earning the CRMA helps address the impact of risk and demonstrates you have the ability to:

  • Provide assurance on core business processes in risk management and governance.
  • Educate management and the audit committee on risk and risk management concepts.
  • Offer quality assurance and control self-assessment.
  • Focus on strategic organizational risks.
  • Add value for your organization as a trusted advisor.
