Designed as an integral part of the journey to Fellowship, the FCIA syllabus details the learning outcomes for five FCIA specialty tracks. Each track is comprised of two online FCIA modules and three open-book FCIA examinations. The modules and examinations enable candidates from a wide array of educational and career backgrounds to acquire and apply general and track-specific knowledge through the CIA’s state-of-the-art Learning Management System (LMS) and virtual examination platform, which, combined with the required experience, will ultimately prepare them to be admitted as a Fellow of the CIA.
