Don’t Miss Out on Being Included in The IIA Certification Registry.
All individuals who have earned an IIA certification or qualification and maintain it by reporting CPE/CPD credits can opt into The IIA Certification Registry. This up-to-date record provides an opportunity for employers and recruiters to verify your certification or qualification. The registry will only include the following: certification holder’s first and last name, certificate ID, certification status, country of residence. Inclusion in the registry is voluntary.
If you do not report, your certification or /qualification goes inactive. As a result, you are no longer approved to represent yourself as a certified individual nor be listed in the registry.
