Build Your Confidence and Test-Taking Skills to Successfully Write Parts 1, 2 & 3 of the CIA® Exam

All three CIA® Exam Prep courses follow the Institute of Internal Auditors’ (IIA) CIA® Learning System, a comprehensive professional development and Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) exam preparation program. They combine printed materials, Web-based tests and resources, and live instruction to teach the first three parts of the global CIA® body of knowledge. This program offers premier quality training that meets the unique demands of internal audit professionals, employers, and instructors.

The Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) is the only globally accepted designation for internal auditors. A recent study conducted by Harrington & Associates Inc. on behalf of the IIA revealed that staff level internal auditors who obtained the CIA designation has a salary of 7.8K greater than non-certified staff-level auditors. An IIA approved instructor will help fully prepare you for the PART 1, 2 & 3 of the 3-part CIA® exam.

“Thanks to the training provided by Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business’ Professional Programs, we were able to provide a group of Fisheries and Oceans Canada internal audit staff with an in-house Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examination preparation course. As a result of the training I received, I was able to not only pass the 3-part examination and obtain my CIA designation, I also received the 2016 William S. Smith CIA – Certificate of Honors Award for outstanding performance on the CIA examination. The William S. Smith Awards are based on individual performance on the core CIA exam parts (parts 1, 2, and 3) and are awarded to candidates that pass each exam part on their first attempt, within one year of taking the first exam part, and who pass the certification exams with the highest scores. Thanks again to the team at Carleton University who made the training possible.”
