New CIA Learning System - Version 7.0
We are now issuing the new CIA Learning (Version 7.0). The new version has been updated to focus on passing the CIA exam parts with speed. It will be tailored to the candidate’s knowledge gaps, learning style, and schedule.
Current student members who have purchased the online materials from 1 September 2020 will receive a free online upgrade but requests must be made by 31 December 2020 on www.learncia.com/upgrade. Please ensure that you choose the online only upgrade, and then go to https://store.partnerrc.com/iia/prints/ to order the printed books which are shipped from the UK. The prices are in USD. Upon checkout, your will see the significant savings that you will receive by choosing to ship from the UK vs the US.
Please note: The exam syllabi has not changed. Therefore, upgrading will not mandatory and the Version 6.0 materials are still applicable for the current version of the exam.
CIA exams going online!
IIA Global are implementing online CIA exams in partnership with OnVue, PearsonVue’s online proctoring service.
As part of this change, they have a dedicated page dealing with the online exams, including an extensive FAQ section.
You can book your online exam via the CCMS.
Watch this short video if you are interested in sitting your exam, but want to learn more about online proctoring.
All exams must be booked via the CCMS.
Pearson Vue reported that some of their centres are open for taking exams. At this point it isn’t clear which centres are open so please log on to your Pearson VUE account and search for a centre near you.
Please see the Pearson Vue website for more information.
In the meantime, you can also sit your CIA exam online via proctoring. More information is available on the IIA Global website.
All CIA Masterclasses will be delivered online and students can book via our website.
But the online delivery is so much more than just an online presentation!
- Instead of two full days of face-to-face delivery, our online workshops are spread over three or four days with ample breaks to minimize your screen time and allow you to fit all your other priorities easily around the workshop sessions.
- Content for the different sessions are clearly signposted so you will always know what the session is about before you log on.
- We included additional practice questions to help you digest the content – either in groups or on your own.
- All the sessions are recorded and will be available via your Masterclass site. You will not lose access to the Masterclass site, and you can return to any of the sessions and re-watch them as you revise for the exams.
- You will be able to download all the slides for the different sessions before the sessions start, allowing you to plan and prepare.
In addition, you will still have access to the usual Masterclass content, including summaries, additional notes and Mindmaps. We are also adding more collaborative features to better integrate the synchronous and asynchronous elements, including Wikis and discussion forums.
We believe that the online workshop should never be inferior to a face to face workshop, and instead of merely trying to replicate a classroom environment, should play to the strengths of online delivery and reflect best practice and current trends in online learning. What we are doing should not just see us through the COVID19 pandemic, but lay the foundation for a new breed of online Masterclasses for years to come.

The delivery of all qualifications tuition, exams and end point assessment for all apprentices will continue online for the foreseeable future.
Rebooking your exam
If the COVID-19 pandemic has directly affected either your exam preparation or your actual scheduled exam, you may be able to rebook your exam via the CCMS without incurring a cost. If the system does require you to make a payment, please do not pay and raise a case via the Help section on the system.
You can request free extensions for the 3 year qualification window or the 180 day exam window via CCMS. Simply raise an incident and request the extension clearly indicating COVID19 as the reason for the extension request.
