Session Overview

This session will highlight the key components of Internal Auditing, including the International Professional Practices Framework, Managing an Internal Audit Function and Conducting Internal Audit Engagements, as well as current case studies. 

As Internal Audit functions evolve, new skills are required to effectively assess an organization’s risks and internal controls. This course will allow individuals that do not have Internal Audit experience to more easily transition into Internal Audit roles by acquiring an understanding of Internal Audit practices and differences between Internal Audit and other audit practices. This course will also benefit individuals working in a control function, as it focuses on identifying, understanding and assessing key risks and controls.

This session is suitable for all levels and recommended to professionals that are new to the Internal Audit profession. This session is also suitable for individuals transitioning from External Audit into Internal Audit.
