Certified Internal Auditor

The ExamMatrix CIA Review, powered by Surgent, is a complete online CIA Exam Review course that utilizes an adaptive learning platform that focuses your study to your weaker areas and reduces your overall study time. While other courses follow a generic “study the book, then study the questions, one topic at a time”, the ExamMatrix CIA Exam Review takes you through a multiple choice question Assessment Phase first to identify weak areas, allowing you to use our reporting features to focus additional learning in specific areas of the textbook, instead of simply reading it cover to cover. The Adaptive Study feature of the course automatically selects questions for you to study based upon previous scoring history and IIA Category Weighting.

The Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) journey begins with a focus on The IIA’s International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards) and aspects of mandatory guidance under the IPPF. The journey continues with a focus on managing an internal audit project and culminates with concepts related to internal control, risk, governance, and technology.

Certified Internal Auditor Frequently Asked Questions
Expand All
Can I register for programs if I am an international student?

Yes, because ed2go programs are online you never have to actually travel to the school. Most schools offer telephone or online registration.

How long does it take to complete a program?

All of our programs are self-paced and open enrollment, so you can start them when you want and finish them at your own pace. When you register, you will have 18 months to sit for and pass each of three exam sections.

What if I don't have enough time to complete my program within the time frame provided?

The time allotted to complete your program has been calculated based on the number of hours for each program, so don't worry too much about not completing in time. If, after a concerted effort, you are still unable to complete, your Student Advisor will help you work out a suitable completion date. Please note that a fee may be charged for an extension.

Do I have to buy additional materials?

No.

Can I get financial assistance?

ed2go courses are non-credit courses, so they do not qualify for federal aid. In some states, vocational rehab or workforce development boards will pay for qualified students to take our courses. Additionally, some students may qualify for financial assistance when they enroll, if they meet certain requirements.

What happens when I complete the program?

Upon successful completion of the program, you will be awarded a certificate of completion.

Am I guaranteed a job?

ed2go programs will provide you with the skills you need to obtain an entry-level position in most cases. We don’t provide direct job placement services, but our facilitators and career counselors will help you build your resume and are available to give advice on finding your first job. Facilitators will also be available to use as a professional reference upon completion of the program. Potential students should always do research on the job market in their area before registering.

Who will be my instructor?

There is no facilitator for this program. Support is offered through access to email and phone.

What software or hardware do I need in order to take online programs and what are the system requirements?
