Accounting is a rapidly growing industry and auditing in particular has gained more importance for lots of established and developing businesses— so it makes logical sense to consider a career as a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA). To maintain this designation, a professional is required to fulfill certain CPE requirements (Continuing Professional Education).
CIAs need to complete their CPE to stay in good standing with Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), that also helps maintain knowledge and skills, and update them to reflect any improvements and developments that have been made to the internal auditing standards, procedures and techniques.
To gain those CPE credits, the professionals are always on the lookout for the best platform or site that can fulfill their requirements in the easiest possible way. However, there’s usually some disappointment finding that the platforms they chose offer courses at higher price and are outdated or irrelevant.
Let’s compare myCPE and IIA to see which could be a better choice for CIA CPE?
Better pricing: CPE credits on myCPE are available for an unmatched price of $10 to $15 per credit, while taking courses from IMA will cost upto $60 per credit. To further bring down the overall cost of continuing education, myCPE has a 40 CPE package for CIA (Compliant with IIA and including Ethics) that helps you get all your CPE credits at one place.
Multiple Compliance: Besides being the top CPE provider for CIA professionals, myCPE also houses courses for 100+ other qualifications including CPA, EA, CFP, CMA, CFF, CFE, CITP, ABV, PFS, CVA, CISA, TEP, etc. While the course options on IIA site are limited, and dedicated for just one qualification, CIA.
You must note that the CIA certification is designed to complement other credentials or degrees which means that the holders of CIA titles have varied skills and expertise. Sounds great but the real problem arises while searching for eligible courses that can fulfil CPE requirements of all the other courses together. Most people are bound to switch between platforms and jump from one site to another for CPE and often end up spending hefty sums of money.
The course library on myCPE has been formed by the work of 400+ subject matter experts and educators who have contributed over 10000+ hours of learning materials to the platform.
Multiple modes of learning (Live+On-Demand+Ebooks+Podcasts, etc.) make it even more favorable for the professionals to take their credits at their convenience. A dedicated mobile app adds to the ease, which is not available with other providers.
