Important Change to CIA’s Education Requirements 

CIA 2013

The IIA’s Global Board of Directors recently approved an alternate path to eligibility for the Certified Internal Auditor designation for candidates who do not have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited university. 

 Candidates may now become eligible for the CIA, subject to approval, if they possess either:

  • 2 years of post-secondary education and 5 years of verified experience in internal auditing or its equivalent.
  • 7 years of verified experience in internal audit or its equivalent.

As it becomes available, more information will be posted here, so check back often for updates and details.
