Internal Auditor Basic Training Workshop - St. Louis, MO
Internal Auditor Basic Training Workshop
About this Event
Join us for a unique, interactive course that "walks you through" the Internal Audit process. The instructors focus on bring out the "tradecraft" needed to be an effective and efficient internal auditor.
"This course 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 course 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.
We present this event in over 40 locations each year to an average of four attendees per event. We have this delivery approach to allow for a focus on individual development and learning from our very experienced auditor educators.
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.
