Internal Audit Basic Training
Internal Audit Basic Training - Three-Day Course Corporate Compliance Seminars
This workshop is not just for auditors or new auditors. It is for anyone who wants an understanding of the relationship between business objectives, risk, control, assessment and reporting.
This comprehensive internal audit training workshop is for anyone who wants to have a strong base of knowledge and understanding of the essential audit and the personal skills to become a successful internal auditor.
We present the "Audit Life Cycle": Discover how audits are planned (based on an assessment of risk); how audits are conducted (fieldwork including interviewing, identifying internal controls, methods of testing, audit sampling, workpaper documentation); how audits are reported (identifying, prioritizing and communicating internal control deficiencies); and how to follow up on audit findings.
Relax and learn through expert instructor presentations, group discussions, role-playing, audit exercises, white-board diagramming and simulations.
This timely, three-day CPE training seminar is designed for the new internal auditor and individuals who have to create effective audit workpapers in performing internal audits and then communicate the results to management.
Upon completion of this course, participants will:
- Understand how an audit is conducted
- Know how to identify risks
- Understand how to evaluate and document internal controls
- Uncover the best techniques for gathering audit evidence
- See the importance of preparing workpapers
- Be able to discuss interpersonal and team-building skills
