The IIA has announced that you will be able to take the CIA exam online without the need to go to a test center. Here is a brief of the IIA’s update:

Certification Online Proctoring — Starting Late April / Early May 2020

  • The IIA has adopted online proctoring to enable candidates to take the CIA, CRMA, and CIA Challenge exams from home, office or other accepted locations. The option will be available for a period of 3 months starting from late April, early May 2020. At the end of the 3-month period the IIA will re-assess the situation to see if it will continue to offer the exams in this format.
  • For the time being, online exams are offered only in English. The IIA will consider providing the exam in other languages throughout the upcoming period.
  • The IIA will evaluate offering the exam in other languages in a phased approach.
