CPE employer accreditation

We operate in a fast-changing environment where high-quality team performance is vital to success.

Our CPE employer accreditation scheme supports organisations that employ IIA members and support them in their Continuing Professional Education (CPE).

IIA accreditation demonstrates:

  • Your commitment to best practice in internal audit 
  • Your commitment to developing your people, contributing to more effective  recruitment and higher staff retention. 

Benefits include:

  1. Independent assessment of your appraisal processes to ensure it is relevant and effective
  2. Recognition on the IIA website, and the opportunity to promote your accreditation
  3. Staff confidence that their CPE meets best practice and IIA standards.

Members with Chartered IIA only designations will not be audited whilst in employment*.

*Please note: Staff with IIA Global designations will still be required to make an annual declaration to confirm their compliance to IIA Global.
