As many CIA exam candidates are aware, the IIA released new Standards that were effective January 1st, 2017. It is important to note that new Standards are not tested on the exam until at least 6 months after their effective date, so the earliest that the new Standards will be tested is July 1st, 2017. We will update the CIA materials in advance of the new testing date after the IIA confirms when testing of the new Standards will begin. Because the changes to the Standards were mostly in wording and definitions rather than a significant change in concepts or procedures, we do not expect that there will be major changes needed in the materials.
If you have any questions about the testing of the new Standards, please do not hesitate to contact us.
