Computer Based Training (CBT)
Computer Based Testing (CBT) allows candidates to sit CIA® examinations on a computer at a secure, pre-determined site. CBT is not the same as sitting for the exam on the internet. The IIA-Australia’s high standards for exam security and integrity can only be guaranteed in a secure, supervised environment. Therefore, the CIA® and specialty exams are only available by attendance at an authorised testing centre.
The use of CBT provides a valid and reliable examination process and offers candidates the flexibility of scheduling their tests on a date, time and location most convenient for them. It also provides candidates with faster scoring and results and better ensures a consistent candidate experience across sites.
Candidates are expected to be familiar with the use of a mouse and keyboard and must be able to use a four function online calculator. A short tutorial is available to each candidate at the testing centre prior to taking the exam.
When taking the computer-based exam, candidates may move freely within the exam, returning to previous questions, changing answers and marking questions that they would like to review before completing the exam. However, once the candidate completes the exam or the test time is over, the candidate can no longer access any exam questions.
The CIA® and specialty exams are administered through the worldwide network of Pearson VUE testing centers. Australian, Papua New Guinea, Fiji and other South Pacific candidates have access to many venues in mainland Australia and in Suva. For all other venues, visit www.vue.com/iia
