CIA – Certified Internal Auditor

 

The CIA® designation is the only globally accepted certification for internal auditors and remains the standard by which individuals demonstrate their competency and professionalism in the internal auditing field. As the IIA (Institute if Internal Auditors) states, “earning the CIA designation is more than just proof of what you know and what you’ve achieved — it’s the best way for auditing professionals to communicate to the world that they are prepared to meet today’s challenges. Candidates leave the program enriched with educational experience, information, and business tools that can be applied immediately in any organization or business environment”.

 

The regulatory body of CIA is IIA (Institute of Internal Auditors).
