The Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) exam has gone high-tech!  Certification exams will be taken via computer at designated locations, replacing the old pencil and paper version.  Gone are the exam windows which limited when you could seek the credential.  Now, take the exam year-round. 

The best way to prepare:  CIA EXTREME Exam Prep, a blended learning approach—combining the best of online review materials with the best of classroom instruction.  Participants receive the new IIA Learning System with online tools and learn from their peers in the classroom. The new 3-part exam has 20% more content and Part 4 is wrapped into the new Part 3. We have changed the number of days for Part 3 to 4 days, in order to cover all the material thoroughly.

 If you are thinking about becoming an internationally recognized Certified Internal Auditor, you need to be prepared for the rigor of the exam.  The Institute of Internal Auditors developed the new system to make learning easier and rewarding.  With CIA EXTREME Exam Prep you get:

  • Quality Training: This course combines expert instruction with premier quality study materials, providing timely analysis and discussion of practical audit procedures.

  • Standardized Curriculum: Each participant gets the IIA Learning System—for either a single part of the exam or the entire 4-part package with an online access code. The IIA CIA Learning System developed by IIA is kept up-to-date by CIA-certified subject matter experts.

  • Best-practice Sharing: Participants learn from the experiences of their classmates.

  • Performance Tracking: Instructors monitor individual and group progress in online review materials to identify areas requiring additional classroom review—all designed to help you pass the exam.

An impressive package of online tools reinforces classroom learning.
Your IIA CIA Learning System includes interactive online review, testing, and resources, including:

  • Pre-tests to identify which topics require intensive study.

  • Section-specific tests to measure comprehension and ability to apply concepts.

  • Post-tests to gauge knowledge gained and identify areas requiring further study.  This online exam will provide superior preparation for new computer-based testing.

  • Final review test to present all test questions for additional exam practice.

  • eFlashcards and glossary that offer review of key terms and definitions.

  • Progress report that tracks activities and scores.

  • Resource Center that provides additional references and feedback opportunities.
