2013 CIA® Candidate Transition Plan and Exam Content Map Now Available
In the second half of 2011, The IIA announced that in response to findings from a Job Analysis Study (JAS) for the Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) program conducted earlier in the year, the Professional Certifications Board (PCB) and the Board of Directors of The IIA approved two key changes to the CIA program. The JAS determined that the body of knowledge related to profession of internal auditing has changed since the last exam content update in 2004 and therefore needs to be adjusted to reflect those changes.
In addition, the PCB has announced the transition plan for CIA program candidates who cannot complete their certification before the new exam is launched in mid-2013. The plan explains how credit for partial completion in the four-part exam will translate to the three-part exam format, and it outlines any additional requirements for achieving credit for specific parts.
To assist candidates with their transition, The IIA also has released a document that shows the realignment of content from the four-part structure to the new three-part exam format. The content map highlights which content has transitioned to a new part, has been removed or added, or has changed knowledge level on the exam.
