Certified Internal Auditor – CIA® (USA)
CIA® Examination Information
The CIA® exam tests a student’s knowledge of current internal auditing practices, internal audit issues and risks and controls.
The CIA® exam is offered in three parts:
- Exam Part 1 – Internal Audit Basics (125 multiple choice questions – 2.5 hours)
- Exam Part 2 – Internal Audit Practice (100 multiple choice questions – 2.0 hours)
- Exam Part 3 – Internal Audit Knowledge Elements (100 multiple choice questions – 2.0 hours)
Computer-based testing (CBT) is available for the CIA® exam parts, allowing students the flexibility to sit for exams at any time during the year. CIA® exam parts can be sat at IIA-authorized Pearson VUE testing centers.
Students must sit for the CIA® exam parts within 180 days from the date their registration is processed by The IIA.
If a student fails any one of the CIA® exam parts, they must wait at least 90 days before retaking that exam (part).
There is no limit to the number of times a student can retake a failed exam part.
Once a student passes an exam part, they are not allowed to retake that exam part again. The only exception is if a student fails to achieve their certification within the defined eligibility period. In this instance, the student must wait for a period of 3 years before resitting the CIA® exam parts.
The certification program’s eligibility requires candidates to complete the program certification process within four years of application approval. If a student fails to complete the certification process within four years, all fees and passed exam parts will be forfeited.
