Certified Internal Auditor

Master the foundation of Internal Auditing and Apply Internal Audit best practices in your daily work routine

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.
