CIA Designation: How Soon Can I Use the Title?

cia designationYou have passed the CIA exam, and it’s time to reap the rewards! Now, how soon can you use the title on your resume and business cards?

Getting the CIA Designation

Once you pass the CIA exam and meet all other program requirements, you will be eligible to receive your CIA certificate. To order your certificate, you must log in to your candidate record in CCMS and complete the certificate order form. The certificate will be shipped directly to you using a standard postal service method at no charge.

In case you need the certification sent to you as soon as possible, expedited shipping is available at an additional cost.

When Can I Start Using the CIA Designation?

You can use your CIA designation as soon as you receive an email from IIA. This email will confirm that you have fulfilled all requirements for the CIA certification.

You may also log into your CCMS profile. Once you see a certification number, you are approved.
