To support students as well as new and rotational auditors on their journey into internal auditing, The IIA is pleased to announce the revised education and employment requirements of the Internal Audit Practitioner program. The Internal Audit Practitioner designation is a great way to demonstrate internal audit aptitude. Active Internal Audit Practitioners opens a new pathway to the Certified Internal Auditor®️ (CIA®️) designation, the only globally recognized certification for internal audit practitioners around the world.
The refreshed program tests a candidate’s fundamental knowledge of current internal auditing practices and understanding of internal audit issues, risks, and controls. The Internal Audit Practitioner designation demonstrates that the holder possesses internal audit aptitude and foundational knowledge of the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing.
Additionally, the Internal Audit Practitioner program provides a new pathway to the CIA program through modified education requirements for active Internal Audit Practitioner designation holders. Candidates will have two years to finish the Internal Audit Practitioner program from the date they are approved into the program.
Complete the Internal Audit Practitioner application including proof of identification through The IIA’s Certification Candidate Management System (CCMS).
