Course duration

The GradCertIA consists of four modules which are expected to be completed over a two year period with a maximum allowed of five years. Candidature will not be extended beyond the five year period including any recognition of previously passed modules.

Each course is held over a 12-week semester, plus a mid-semester break of at least one week and a further two week assessment preparation period.  

Rules of progression

Candidate progression through the course is prescribed to the extent that the entry point is Module 1: Risk Based Internal Auditing and the exit point is Module 4: Professional in Practice. Candidates must first successfully complete Module 1 before progressing to Module 2: Legal and Regulatory Environment and Module 3: Organisational Systems and Processes.

Once Module 1 has been successfully completed, Modules 2 and 3 can be undertaken in any order, and the successful completion of Modules 1–3 is pre-requisite for enrolment in Module 4.

Module 4: Professional in Practice is a ‘capstone’ module, which draws on the knowledge and skills developed in the first three modules and focuses on high level application of learning in a professional (workplace) context.
