Take a fast track route to becoming CIPFA and IIA qualified
As a fully qualified member of the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) or the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) you can use our fast track routes to dual membership and enhance your skills and career opportunities.
Thanks to a new partnership between CIPFA and training tuition provider BHBi, you can study to gain dual CIPFA and Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) membership, with BHBi.
If you are a qualified IIA member you only need to take three CIPFA examinations to gain the CPFA chartered accountant designation. The three modules you would need to take are:
Please note: IIA members taking this route are exempt from submitting the Practical Experience Portfolio, our work experience requirement.
If you are a qualified CIPFA member you can benefit from an accelerated route to gaining chartered internal auditor status and the CMIIA designation, available from BHBi. Holders of the CPFA designation with a minimum of three years of recent internal audit experience are eligible (conditions apply).
More information on this fast track route can be found on the BHBi website.
BHBi offers both CIPFA and IIA fast track routes to dual membership.
