Waqar is our first ever blogger for this CIA exam site. He writes for us every Wednesday. This is his first post.
Hello guys my name is Waqar Akmal and I’m starting my journey for CIA. I’m totally excited about this and can’t wait to share my experiences with you guys.
As you know, CIA is the one of the best certifications an auditor can hold. That’s why I have chosen CIA as I want to have a career in which I know everything. I’m also doing CMA, both of these certifications covers (almost) all aspects of an organization.
The only impossible journey is the one you never begin”
The Institute of Internal auditors has given us the flexibility to choose from the three exams — what I mean here is that we can choose whichever exam part to take first. Yes, it totally depends on our own decision. I have decided to take part 1 first and go chronically. That’s what I did with CMA. Also, from what I heard from most CIA exam students, part 1 is easier than the other two parts.
All things are difficult before they are easy”
I consider my self lucky to go for this certification. It’s like dream come true. I got the best mentor and the best place (institute) where I have started my journey. My mentor worked as an auditor and he himself is a CIA. Because of the experience my mentor has on audit, when he teaches us certain concept, he is able to relate it to the real life scenario which he faced himself for many years as an auditing professional. It really helps when he relates the topic or a theory with the real life experience because if you don’t have any experience or a good mentor it would be more difficult for you to understand these topics which CIA covers.
I read this statement on the internet and we all know where I searched 😀 yes ! you are right I’m talking about Google but this is one the best quotes you can ever find. I really don’t know why these quotes motivates me but they do.
Will it be easy? Nope. Worth it? Absolutely”
I will share all my experiences with you guys as I get one step ahead in my journey and with the help of Stephanie. I think the journey will be more smooth because she is here for us. A quote for Stephanie as you deserve this.
We rise by lifting others”
Thanks for your quote! For those who don’t know Waqar, he has been a popular blogger over at my CMA exam site. We have been following his journey from passing Part 1 to finishing Part 2, now waiting together for his result in August.
I am so glad that Waqar continues his quest of excellence on this site and be our very first CIA exam blogger. I hope his ever positive attitude and his quotes keep motivating all of us!
Looking forward to your second post next week.
