The ICBA Education Auditing Certificate program equips internal auditors with the knowledge and tools needed to successfully conduct and perform the internal audit function in their bank.

This certificate program consists of five critical learning areas (31 total courses). Each course includes an exam and then each area includes a comprehensive exam. The Program takes approximately 24 hours to complete. Upon successful completion of all five learning areas, the learner is awarded a certificate of completion.

This certificate program is not the same as ICBA’s certification programs, which are instructor led and require continuing education in order to maintain the specific designation.

The Audit Certificate is for individual learners only and is not available for bank-wide use. Purchasers of the individual certificate will have access to the program for 365 days from the date of purchase. Certificates cannot be transferred to another user.
