"I encourage everyone in my internal audit unit to take the IIA's qualifications"

Brian Moreland CMIIA

The advice, training and support from the Institute have been invaluable since I joined as a trainee internal auditor. I have taken a keen interest in the increasing emphasis on professionalism.

I encourage everyone in my internal audit unit to take the IIA's qualifications as they are second to none in providing a solid foundation for the provision of an effective service to management.

IIA Diploma

Registration for the IIA Diploma is now closed

The IIA Diploma has been replaced by the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), which is a globally-recognised certification. 

Registration for the IIA Diploma has now closed but we will continue to support existing students with tuition. The final study session will lead to exams in November 2017. PEJ submissions are due by 1 May 2018, at the very latest.

Members who pass the IIA Diploma will earn the PIIA designation and will also be eligible to accept the CIA designation. 

Studying for your qualification 

There are five theory modules to complete and you will be assessed by exams and your Professional Experience Journal (PEJ).

Tuition is compulsory when you study the IIA Diploma, unless you are studying the accelerated route. Our in-house tuition provider, IIA Learning, offers a range of options, including face-to-face tuition and a distance learning programme to support you. 

Most people take around two years to complete the qualification. 


If you are studying the IIA Diploma you can still apply for exemptions if you are eligible.
