Objectives and Benefits of Certification


The Certified Internal Control Specialist program is intended to establish standards for initial qualification; then provide direction for the internal control activities through an aggressive education program and specification of an improving standard of professional competence. This certification program helps to:


  1. Define the tasks (job dimensions) associated with the internal control activities in order to evaluate mastery of the internal control activities.
  2. Demonstrate an individual’s willingness to improve professionally.
  3. Acknowledge attainment of an acceptable standard of professional competency.
  4. Aid organizations in selecting and promoting qualified individuals.
  5.  Motivate personnel having internal control responsibilities to maintain their professional competency.
  6. Assist individuals in improving and enhancing their organization’s internal control programs (i.e., provide a mechanism to lead a professional).




Knowledge within a profession doesn't remain constant. Having passed the certification examination, a certified professional has demonstrated knowledge of the designation's Common Body of Knowledge at the point in time of qualification. In order to remain current in the field as knowledge and techniques change and mature, the professional must be actively engaged in professional practice and stay aware of new and emerging practices.
