Addressed to:

This course, although it is primarily addressed to qualified accountants, providing them with the opportunity to acquire the CIA designation by taking a single exam incorporating all three parts of the regular CIA Exams, it will also be of significant support to anyone who is interested in becoming a Certified Internal Auditor by taking the three parts of the regular exams separately, as it will cover the syllabus of all three parts. Additionally, the course will assist the participants in understanding in depth the methodology and technique that should be followed by them in the exam process.
