The demand for internal auditors is high across all business disciplines. Earning your Certified Internal Audit (CIA) certification signals to potential employers that you have the knowledge, skills and credibility to conduct internal audits of their organizations’ controls. The CIA is the only globally recognized certification for internal auditors, preparing you to perform audits for any organization across the globe.
Internal auditors do not need an accounting background and often come from the areas of logistics, human resources, marketing, finance or operations. A CIA would typically audit non-financial aspects of an organization such as:
- Government regulations
- Federal state regulations
