Professional qualifications, recognised globally
Internal audit is a complex and fast evolving field and it is growing quickly as a global profession. Being professionally qualified will give you the knowledge and confidence you need to succeed, as well as the recognition and status internal auditors deserve.
Chartered IIA qualifications are recognised internationally. And, our unique ability to award Chartered Internal Auditor status means you can achieve the same high levels of prestige and credibility enjoyed by members of other leading professions.
Step 1: Certified Internal Auditor
The Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) is a globally recognised certification that provides a firm foundation for a career in internal auditing. Becoming certified is also a prerequisite to becoming chartered.
Step 2: Chartered Internal Auditor
As a CIA holder you could maximise your potential and raise your profile by becoming a Chartered Internal Auditor. Becoming chartered will demonstrate your advanced skills and competence and give you influence within both your organisation and wider profession.
Is there another way I can become chartered?
Yes, you could become chartered by experience via our experiential route. This is for experienced professionals who are working as heads of internal audit.
