Effective 1 April 2017, there will be an increase for IIA Certification application, registration, and CPE / CPD reporting fees.
Several factors have contributed to the decision and need to increase the fees:
- Our certification vendor, Pearson VUE, increased our price for candidate “seat time” (the amount of time allotted for candidate testing). This is the first fee increase we have experienced from Pearson VUE since we began utilizing their test centers in 2008.
- Based on market demand, our certification portfolio has expanded significantly over the last several years. In the last 3 years we have launched the CRMA, QIAL, and Internal Audit Practitioner programs; and acquired the BEAC Certification programs (CPEA and CPSA). These additions to the global portfolio have been funded on the original business model.
- The IIA continues to invest in the security of our certification portfolio to secure exam content on a global basis. This investment in securing our intellectual property ensures the rigor, credibility, and reputation of the certification programs.
- The IIA compared the new fees against other organizations and determined that IIA Global certification fees are comparable with industry fees.
