Traditional Certifications Are Theoretical
Take YEARS, and don't help you do your job better!

Modern Certifications Are Practical and Take Only 1-2 WEEKS!

Certifications are a necessary part of developing your professional career. Without them, you risk being held back in your career, your earning potential, and your promotion possibilities.

Then why do traditional certifications use barriers and tricks like educational requirements, years of experience, and exams where 50-60% of people fail each time? Because those traditional organizations continue to believe in a discriminatory, archaic, and broken model of certifying people.

Certifications are even more important to your career now ... and the certification process needs to change with the times.

The history and future of professional certifications,
and our philosophy

Certifications prove individuals have basic knowledge, skills and competencies in particular topical areas proven by passing an exam.

The problem is many use traditional certifications as a way to limit the number of people with the certification. Traditional certifications assume the tougher it is to become certified, the more valuable the certification is to those who already have it. That is just not true.

Traditional certifications use techniques such as formal educational requirements (degrees, etc...), years of experience, and curved exams (only ~40% of people can pass each time) to limit the number of certified professionals.

Traditional certifications take years to complete, and often tens of thousands of dollars in preparation materials, applications, testing fees and study time ... and that doesn't even cover the anxiety and shame you feel by failing the tricky exams multiple times, or the degrees you had to get before you could even take the exams.

Traditional certifications are developed through committees, over a period of many years. They cannot keep pace with our ever increasingly changing, modern world.

Saddest still, much of the content taught through the traditional certification process is now antiquated, wrong and doesn't help you do your job better since they are based on theory.

You deserve better.

People who understand the material, have passed the exam, and maintain continuing professional education (CPE) credits should be able to get certified, right?

Certifications should teach lasting principles that are practical, not techniques and detailed practices that become obsolete shortly after development, right?

The more people that become certified, the more we help the profession and add more value to our organizations, right?

Boards and management are expecting internal audit functions to be more strategic, agile, and proactive. Traditional certifications don't help you do that.

Have you fully considered what it will cost you if you don't become more strategic, agile, and proactive?

Great news.

The knowledge, skills, and competencies you need to face the new challenges now and in the future, are available in cRisk Academy modern certifications ... you can earn in 1-2 weeks.
