The Institute of Internal Auditors Philippines has every reason to rejoice as the two of our newly certified individuals, who also attended IIAP’s 33rd & 34th CIA Seminar Series, earned the prestigious 2016 William S. Smith CIA – Certificate of Honors Award for their outstanding performance on the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examination. Mr. Julius Mondala, Senior IT Audit Manager of SM Prime Holdings, Inc. & Mr. Brian Stone, Internal Audit Manager of Asian Terminals, Inc. successfully completed the CIA exam on their first attempt for each part, being recognized by the IIA for garnering the next top 50 highest CIA exam scores from the 46,416 candidates who also took the CIA exam.

The Certificate of Honors is one of the William S. Smith Awards for Outstanding CIA Examination Performance. The Smith awards are named in honor of the first Chairman of the Board of Regents, who was a driving force behind the development of the CIA program.  Consideration for the Smith awards is based on a candidate’s performance on the core parts of the CIA exam (Parts I, II, and III).

In connection with this achievement, IIAP held a congratulatory dinner last 16 February  2017 at Jade Garden, Makati to celebrate and honor their commitment to delivering excellence to the Institute, their organizations, and most especially, to the Internal Audit community.
