Changes to Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) program scheduled for July 2013
The IIA Global has advised that there will be changes to the CIA from July 2013. The first change will impact the exam structure, reducing the program from four to three exam parts. With the reduction in parts, The IIA will be eliminating the recognition credit provision previously applicable to Part 4. The final change consists of a realignment of the exam content outline and question count for each part.
There is a transition process for those who are currently in the CIA program and do not complete the program prior to the implementation of the new structure. Additional details related to the transition process can be found here.
Under the transition plan, Parts 1 and 2 in the current four-part format qualifies as Parts 1 and 2 in the new three-part format. By registering and sitting for Parts 1 and 2 prior to the launch of the new exam format, you set yourself on a solid course toward becoming a CIA, leaving you only with Part 3 of the new three-part program to complete.
Please note: If you have completed Part 3 without Part 4 of the current four-part format or vice versa, you will need to re-take Part 3 of the new three-part program. Please ensure you have completed both Parts 3 and 4 before July 2013 if you would like these exams to qualify for Part 3 of the new three-part program.
