The CIA is the only globally accepted designation for internal auditors and remains the standards by which individuals demonstrate their competence and professionalism in the internal audit field.
Candidates leave the programme enriched with educational experience, information, and business tools that can be applied immediately in any organisation or business environment.
The CCSA is the specialty certification for practitioners of control self-assessment (CSA). The CCSA certification programme identifies the skill sets needed by successful practitioners of CSA, measures understanding of CSA and provides guidance for CSA initiatives.
Gaining the required knowledge of areas such as risk and control models — often considered the realm of auditors only — exposes CSA practitioners from all backgrounds to concepts that are vital in effectively using CSA to help clients achieve their objectives.
The Certified Financial Services Auditor® (CFSA) is one of The IIA's specialty certifications that measures an individual's knowledge of, and proficiency in, audit principles and practices within the banking, insurance, and securities financial services industries.
The Certified Government Auditing Professional (CGAP®) is the specialty certification designed specifically for and by government auditing practitioners. The CGAP certification programme explores candidates’ comprehension of government auditing practices, methodologies and environment, as well as related standards and risk/control model.
Whether you are new to the government sector or a seasoned practitioner, the CGAP certification offers benefits by verifying your capabilities and providing an avenue for improving your skills and knowledge.
The CRMA is designed for internal
auditors and risk management professionals with responsibility for and
experience in providing risk assurance, governance processes, quality
assurance, or control self-assessment (CSA). It demonstrates an
individual’s ability to evaluate the dynamic components that comprise an
organization’s governance and enterprise risk management program and
provide advice and assurance around these issues.
The CRMA is one more mark of professional distinction for internal
audit practitioners. Earning the CRMA will assist you in demonstrating
your ability to:
- Provide assurance on core business processes in risk management and governance.
- Educate management and the audit committee on risk and risk management concepts.
- Focus on strategic organizational risks.
- Add value for your organization.
The CRMA computer-based testing exam will begin registration 1 May 2013 and testing will begin 1 July 2013 in English only.
CPE is facilitated through a self-certification process with the completion and reporting of required CPE hours on an annual basis.
New CIAs are awarded 80 CPE hours; new CCSAs, CGAPs, CFSAs, and CRMAs are awarded 40 CPE hours. Half of the awarded CPE hours (40 or 20) are for the year in which the exam is passed, and the other half are for the subsequent year.
As an IIA certified professional, you are responsible for ensuring that the CPE information in your report is accurate. You must include your membership or customer identification number when reporting your CPE.
The reporting deadline for Singapore members is by 1 December of each calendar year. CPE reporting by IIA members is free; non-members must submit a S$250 processing fee together with the CPE form and worksheet. IIA-certified professionals who fail to meet their CPE requirements by the reporting deadline will automatically be placed in inactive status and may not use their designation.
Candidates that are inactive for less than 12 months need to report CPE for the prior year. The number of hours required is equivalent to the reporting status (practising or non-practising). Candidates that are inactive for greater than 12 months fall under the reinstatement policy and are required to submit 80 hours of CPE. A reinstatement fee of SGD155 for members or SGD350 non-members is also required*.

In order to streamline the CIA exam process for candidates and to avoid an impending price increase in the delivery of exams by our vendor, Global IIA is reducing the number of un-scored questions on the CIA exam and specialty exams.
For each CIA part, the number of questions will be reduced from 100 to 90, of which 80 will continue to be scored. In addition, the time allowed for the exam will be reduced from 2 hours 45 minutes to 2 hours 25 minutes. An additional 5 minutes will be allowed for the survey at the end of the exam.
For each specialty exam, the number of questions will be reduced from 125 to 115 (of which 100 will continue to be scored), and the time allowed for the exam will be reduced from 3 hours 15 minutes to 2 hours 55 minutes with an additional 5 minutes allowed for the survey.
IMPORTANT: The reduction in the number of un-scored questions does NOT impact the passing score as the number of scored questions required to pass remains the same.
In order to facilitate this reduction, the exam tutorial, which was previously only available to candidates once they had arrived at the test center and been admitted, will now be available on our website.
