Update on IIA Certification Exam Seat Time Reduction

Since January 2012, The IIA has been implementing, on a language-by-language basis, two key changes that enhance the certification candidate’s exam experience:

  • The removal of the computer-based testing (CBT) tutorial from the examination process
  • A reduction in the number of unscored questions on exams

These two changes are enabling The IIA to reduce the candidate’s exam seat time and avoid an impending price increase from the testing vendor.
