Internal audits are an important requirement of effective corporate governance. The internal auditor is at the front line in evaluating management’s risk management and internal control systems, assessing the accuracy of financial information, and ensuring compliance with laws and regulations. Learn how to perform these important duties and comply with the professional auditing standards.
In this five-day intensive training, attendees will learn the concepts of traditional and operational auditing and gain proven tools and techniques for performing effective audits. You will get a solid background in the basics of documenting and evaluating internal control/fieldwork techniques. Using specifically formulated case exercises, participants will examine the critical elements of internal auditing: assessing risk, flowcharting, designing flexibility into the audit program, performing the audit and applying audit results to solve business problems.
You will focus on and put into practice the communications skills associated with internal auditing: conferencing with customers, writing audit findings and selling audit recommendations.
