Are you a GRC Professional?

GRC Audit Certification – GRCA

The GRC Audit (GRCA) certification ensures that you understand and are able to audit GRC activities. You must have a GRC Professional (GRCP) certification before you can apply for a GRCA certification.

GRCP - GRC Professional Certification

What Is The GRC Audit Certification?

The GRCA certifies that an individual has the core understanding and skills to assess, evaluate, and audit GRC capabilities.

This certification is perfect for any professional who wants to review and provide assurance to management and the board that the GRC capability, or some subset of capabilities are designed and operating effectively.

The GRCA builds on top of the GRCP Certification.
