There are two ways that new members can join the IIA:
1. Student membership
For studying the IIA Diploma or IIA Advanced Diploma
Student membership is for internal auditors who want to invest in their career by taking a professional qualification in internal auditing.
The first step is to take the IIA Diploma. When you complete this you will become a voting member and can use the PIIA designation. You can then study for the IIA Advanced Diploma. This is our highest qualification and when you complete this you will become a Chartered Internal Auditor and use the designation CMIIA.
2. Affiliate membership
For services without studying
Affiliate membership is open to anyone working in internal audit and who is not ready to take the IIA Diploma or IIA Advanced Diploma. If you want to keep up to date with the profession and access IIA services including professional support, guidance on best practice and industry trends, then you should consider joining us as an Affiliate.
