There are two main ways you can join the Chartered IIA: as an affiliate or student member. Both give you access to our full range of membership benefits.
1. Student membership
For studying the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) or taking an apprenticeship
Student membership is for internal auditors who want to study our professional qualifications, starting with the CIA, and for those taking an apprenticeship programme.
2. Affiliate membership
For membership services without studying
Join as an affiliate member if you're working in internal audit but not yet planning to take our qualifications.
Other types of membership we offer
If you are part of a team of ten or more internal auditors, a group membership scheme could be for you. Your organisation will save money and time by signing up the whole team.
If you are head of an in-house internal audit function, the IIA has a dedicated networking service especially for you. You need to be a member to be eligible for Audit Leaders - you can join and apply at the same time.
If you're a Certified Internal Auditor joining the institute for the first time, you will become a 'voting member', which means you can vote at our AGM.
