The Certified Internal Auditor exam

Becoming a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) is a fantastic career move for many professionals in the auditing field. The CIA is the only globally recognized internal auditor certification. The distinction indicates a dedication to internal auditing and demonstrates credibility in the field. CIAs can earn higher wages and pursue more advanced job opportunities than non-certified accountants. Just over 40% of test takers passed the exam in 2020, proving the CIA’s selective outcomes.
