The CISA course in Singapore is aimed at working Information Systems Audit professionals with at least five years of on-the-ground experience. IT professionals who have similar duties as internal IT auditors will also find this course crucial to performing their roles well.

A minimum of 5 years of professional information systems auditing, control or security work experience (as described in the CISA job practice areas) is required for CISA certification. Exemptions and replacements for equivalent experience, up to a maximum of 3 years, can be acquired as follows:

  • One year of experience in information systems or one year of non-IS auditing experience can be replaced with a maximum of one year of information systems experience.
  • Similarly, between 60 and 120 university semester credit hours, equivalent to a two-year or four-year degree, without being restricted by a ten-year timeframe, can be exchanged for one or two years of experience, respectively.
  • A university master’s or bachelor’s degree following the Model Curricula sponsored by ISACA can be used to substitute one year of experience, with a list of eligible schools available at www.isaca.org/modeluniversities. However, this substitution is not applicable if a combination of three years of experience substitution and an educational waiver has already been claimed.
  • For individuals who have spent two years as a full-time instructor in university in a related field, such as computer science, accounting, or information systems auditing, they are allowed an exemption as they can substitute this experience for one year of practical experience.
  • One year of experience may alternatively be substituted with a master’s degree in information technology or security from a recognised university.

For instance, a candidate must have three years of real work experience at the very least (assuming a two-year exemption from experience through the substitution of 120 university credits). It is possible to complete this experience by:

  • Three years of experience with IS audit, control, security, or assurance; or Two years with IS audit, control, assurance, or security; plus one full year without IS audit or security; or Two years working as a full-time instructor in a university.
