"The CMIIA qualification enabled me to further my career"

Steve Vinall CFIIA

I had been in internal audit for over 15 years when I decided to study with the IIA. Undoubtedly the CMIIA qualification enabled me to further my career to a level that would not otherwise have been possible. It also gets me involved in more interesting and varied work.
