Computer-Based Testing (CBT) for the IIA Certification Program
The IIA is pleased to announce a significant enhancement to its certification program. Beginning in May 2008, certification testing will be available on a year-round basis through the new computer-based testing (CBT) process. Originally scheduled for roll-out in February with pre-determined testing windows, CBT will now go live in May, with no testing-window constraints. This means that certification candidates will be able to take full advantage of computer-based testing anytime throughout the year in multiple languages.
To further enhance the CBT process, The IIA has contracted with an industry-leading software vendor to deliver a high-quality registration and application process, resulting in a more complete launch. "By slightly delaying CBT roll-out," says IIA Vice President Professional Practices Susan Lione, CIA, CCSA, CGAP, CFSA, "we will be able to offer long-term benefits that far exceed previous expectations!"
Please check The IIA’s Web site in March for program details and information on the registration process. Registration will begin in April. (The registration process and timing may differ in countries in which the local IIA institute manages the registration process. Candidates should refer to The IIA’s Web site for a list of these countries, along with contact information). Upon registering, a candidate will have six months to sit for the exam. Candidates who do not pass an exam part must wait 90 days before being allowed to retest. Upon its availability, more information will be posted to The IIA’s Web site at www.theiia.org/certification.
