Changes to Certification Programs Effective 1 September 2019

Program Eligibility Window Change – CIA ONLY
To align with the three-part CIA exam, the CIA program eligibility window has been adjusted from four years to three years. This reflects the amount of time typically required to complete the certification process.

Candidates who are already approved into the program prior to 1 September 2019 will maintain a four-year program window. Candidates approved into the program on or after 1 September 2019 will have three years to complete the program. Candidates can still request a one-year extension.

Exam Retake Window Shortened – ALL CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS
To enable in-process candidates for all certifications and qualifications to complete the certification process more quickly, the waiting period to retake an exam will be shortened from 90 to 60 days.

As long as it is still within the program eligibility window, in-process candidates can retake the exam after waiting 60 days.
