Eligibility Criteria

Eligibility criteria for CISA®

Although there is no pre-requisite to attend the training; to acquire the CISA® Certification, the minimum requirement is 5 years of professional information systems auditing, control or security work experience. If there are certain education and general IS or audit experience to one’s credit, then, there can be waiver’s which are listed below:

  • A maximum of 1 year of information systems experience OR 1 year of non-IS auditing experience can be substituted for 1 year of experience.
  • 60 to 120 completed university semester credit hours (the equivalent of a 2-year or 4-year degree) not limited by the 10-year preceding restriction, can be substituted for 1 or 2 years, respectively.
  • A bachelor's or master's degree from a university that enforces the ISACA-sponsored curriculum can be substituted for 1 year of experience. This option cannot be used if 3 years of experience and educational waiver have already been claimed.
  • A master's degree in information security or information technology from an accredited university can be substituted for 1 year of experience.
  • 2 years as a full-time university instructor in a related field (e.g., computer science, accounting, in-formation systems auditing) can be substituted for 1 year of experience.
  • 3 years of IS audit, control, assurance or security experience can be substituted for 1 year of experience
Many individuals choose to take the CISA exam prior to meeting the experience requisites. Although this practice is acceptable and encouraged; CISA certification / designation will not be granted until all requirements are met.

The work experience for CISA certification must be gained within the 10-year period preceding the application date for certification or within 5 years from the date of originally passing the exam.

Candidates will get only 5 years from the passing date to apply for certification.
