Certification in Risk Management AssuranceTM (CRMA®)


The Institute of Internal Auditors has announced the development of the Certification in Risk Management Assurance (CRMA).
The CRMA is designed for internal auditors and risk management professionals with responsibility for and experience in providing risk assurance, governance processes, quality assurance, or control self-assessment (CSA). It demonstrates an individual’s ability to evaluate the dynamic components that comprise an organization’s governance and enterprise risk management program and provide advice and assurance around these issues.

The CRMA is one more mark of professional distinction for internal audit practitioners. Earning the CRMA will assist you in demonstrating your 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.
  • Focus on strategic organizational risks.
  • Add value for your organization.
Registration for the CRMA exam opened on May 1, 2013, and testing will begin July 1, 2013, in English only.

Part I of the Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) exam is a co-requisite to achieve the CRMA designation. For a complete list of eligibility requirements and additional information about the CRMA certification, visit
