UAE Internal Audit Association also announced that the deadline for receiving applications for the CRMA was extended until the end of March due to the high demand.
According to The UAE Internal Audit Association, UAE has also ranked fourth worldwide, preceded only by the United States, Canada and the People’s Republic of China, in the number of internal auditors who hold CRMA certifications.
Commenting on this milestone, Mr. Abdulqader Obaid Ali, President of the UAE Internal Audit Association (UAE-IAA) said: “The UAE is considered one of the world’s fastest growing countries in the field of internal audit. The ranking of UAE as one of the top countries in the CRMA is a benchmark, which will motivate us to work harder towards consolidating our position and taking this profession to higher levels.”
CRMA is considered one of the most promising professional certificates, which is designed for internal auditors and practitioners who are interested in Risk Management Assurance. Holders of this valuable certification will be able to provide assurance on core business processes in risk management and governance, educate the management on risk management concepts, as well as focus on strategic organizational risks. Until the 31st of March 2013, the certificate will be obtained based on Professional Experience Recognition (PER), which takes into consideration three different factors: education, current certifications held and professional experience.
“Internal audit plays vital roles in the success of any organization, as auditors can address the risks and help the companies avoid any future obstacles, said Mr. Abdulqader.“Internal audit is the first line of defense for companies and this certificate will help improve the standard of audit practices for professionals in the region.”
