CPA Ireland and CIIA Partnership


With great pleasure, CPA Ireland has announced a new partnership with the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors (CIIA).

Members of CPA Ireland now have the option to join the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors by passing the online CIA challenge exam and satisfying the qualifications for good standing.

The CIA challenge exam is a fast-track route for qualified accountants to complete the highly respected Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) certification. This route is available only to members of qualified accounting bodies and covers all areas of the CIA certification. Candidates doing the CIA challenge exam are required to sit one exam to earn the CIA designation. The masterclass for the CIA challenge exam takes place in October and January with exam sittings in either November or February.

We have also concluded an access agreement to the highest level of CIA membership (Chartered Internal Auditor status), the gold standard in internal auditing.

For the Chartered exam there is an enrolment option this September with exams in January, and March with exams in July.
