IIA to Offer Remote, Online Testing For CIA, CRMA Certifications

Virtual offering of exams to begin on 27 April 2020; registration open now

To address the critical need for internal audit in these extraordinary times, as well as to meet the expectations of professionals wanting to maintain and advance their skills, The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) will begin providing online testing for all three parts of the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) exam and for the Certification in Risk Management Assurance (CRMA). The CIA Challenge Exam, for qualified individuals, also will be available online.

New applicants and those who signed up for in-person exams can register for the online offerings now, with scheduling to begin on 27 April 2020. Online testing will be available only on an interim basis.

Certification exams are normally administered only in on-site locations around the world. However, out of the utmost caution to avoid further spread of COVID-19, most exam centers have been temporarily closed. The IIA understands that uncertainties during the pandemic are forcing many to reassess how they do their jobs. Internal audit professionals are no exception, as they work tirelessly to show their value and commitment to providing well-informed and thoughtful assurance and evaluation of risk management and effective governance during these extraordinary times.

The CIA, awarded to more than 165,000 individuals since 1974, is the only recognized internal audit certification in the world. To become a Certified Internal Auditor, candidates must meet educational and experience requirements, and pass all three parts of the CIA exam. Many CIAs today are chief and senior internal audit managers, vice presidents, and directors in top global companies.

The CRMA represents acumen in providing advice and assurance on risk management to audit committees and executive management.
