Professional Training Program Registration

The preferred and recommended route to obtain the IIA SA designations is through the successful completion of a professional training program.

In order for a program to be initiated, the candidate should be employed with an organisation that meets the requirements of a training provider approved by the IIA SA. The employer would need to be able to provide exposure as required by the training logbook (TLB), enable and encourage the learner to attend the training modules, and provide internal logistical support. The employer must sign an Operational Agreement with the IIA SA, and the learner should enter into a learnership agreement with the employer and training provider.

The format of the Professional Training Programs is such that they are not bound to an academic or calendar year, and so can start at any time, once the required number of participants has been sourced. To contain costs, a minimum group size of 20 is required before commencement of a program. The group may be homogenous (from a single employer) or generic (drawn from different employers). Also note that no more than 25 will be enrolled in a TM group, to ensure efficient transfer of knowledge.

The total cost of the program is made up of three elements: the training modules including course material, files, an induction & closing-out session, accreditation & verification visits, and the final assessment; the IIA SA membership costs (if not already a member); and the cost of the facility used for the presentation of the training modules - where that is applicable.

Entrance Requirements


The first step in the process is to register as a member of the IIA SA. Membership of the IIA SA is a pre-requisite for any person wishing to take part in the Professional Training Programs. Members agree to abide by the code of ethics, the standards for the professional practice of internal auditing and any terms set by IIA SA for membership and accreditation.
