Course Description

The Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) exam tests a candidate’s knowledge of current internal auditing practices and understanding of internal audit issues, risks and remedies. The exam is offered in three parts, each part consisting of multiple-choice questions. The testing period is different for each of the parts and it is determined based on the number of questions.

The IIA regularly updates the content of the CIA exam to make sure the content is always up-to-date and relevant for the practicing internal auditor.

The topics are not all tested at the same skill level. The IIA recognizes two cognitive levels:

(B) – Basic: The candidate is responsible for comprehension and recall of information.

(P) – Proficient: The candidate is responsible not only for comprehension and recall of information but also for higher-level mastery of the content, including application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation.

*Note: All items in this section of the syllabus will be tested at the Basic (B) knowledge level unless otherwise indicated below
