Frequently Asked Questions

Individuals looking to prepare for the exam can take advantage of preparation materials that are available through the ISACA. Many ISACA chapters also host CISA exam review courses. It is recommended that people preparing for the exam take as many practice tests as possible in addition to studying the ISACA Review Manual and learning to think like an accountant.

Adopting an accountant's mindset is beneficial because most of the people who write the CISA exam either work as accountants or in the financial services industry. Therefore, by thinking like an accountant, a test-taker can gain a greater understanding of the questions and answers and the way they were written.

If a CISA candidate passes the exam, they will be sent the information needed to apply for the CISA certificate. However, they must first ensure they have met the work experience requirements.

CISA applicants and certification holders must abide by ISACA's Continuing Professional Education (CPE) program. This training is to ensure that CISAs stay up to date and proficient in their fields.

The goals of the CPE program include:

  • Monitoring IS audit, control, and security professionals' maintenance of knowledge and capabilities.
  • Dividing qualified CISAs from those who have not met the requirements and cannot continue their certification.
  • Assisting top management in the construction of stable IS audit, control, and security functions with suggestions and criteria for personnel selection, training, and development.
  • Preserving an individual's CISA capabilities by updating existing knowledge and skills within IS auditing, control, and security.

ISACA requires maintenance fees and a minimum of 20 CPE hours annually, plus an additional 120 contact hours during a fixed three-year period.

The CISA certification is recognized worldwide as the sign of an individual's excellence within information system auditing. Benefits of a CISA certification include:

  • A competitive advantage in the job market and with job growth.
  • Increased value of the individual within the organization.
