The Internal Audit School

About This Course:

In this intensive seminar you will master fundamental operational auditing techniques and learn how to use a risk-based approach to enhance your audits of the Purchasing, Marketing, Human Resources, Information Technology (IT), Management, Finance, Treasury, and Accounting functions.
You will explore the objectives of major business operation areas and learn how to identify the key risks threatening them. You will find out how to make your audits more efficient and effective and how to use data analytics to gain an in-depth understanding of business processes.
You also will cover such critical areas as the impact of SOX, ERM, and GRC on the organization, uncovering fraud schemes that threaten business operations, and the role of IA in helping management build strong risk management and strategic planning processes.
You will leave this high-impact seminar with the skills necessary to go beyond outputs and to examine the organization's ability to achieve the necessary outcomes.

Why Take the Internal Auditor School Training Seminar?:

Internal auditing is a crucial job that many businesses rely on. A good internal auditor finds things that other managers of the business miss, potentially saving them from costly inefficiencies, operational errors and fines or other legal troubles. Many companies may even have a team of internal auditors of various skill levels looking over different areas of the business.
If you want to join such a team, you need to do anything you can to make yourself stand out. A bachelor’s degree in accounting, business or finance is a great start, but it’s more than likely that the firms you really want to work for will be looking for something more when it comes to your internal auditor education.
Our Internal Auditing Training seminar is an ideal way to continue your internal auditor professional education, especially when you use it to build on our Fraud Auditing Boot Camp class. The Internal Auditor School is only a four-day seminar. Although we will put you through your paces during that seminar, you will not have to take a significant amount of time off from work to go through it. In less than a week, you could have the knowledge and background you need to qualify for a promotion at your current position or seek out an internal auditor position at a more desirable company.
This intensive seminar covers many key auditing functions, provided by expert instructors in a clear, digestible way so you can absorb all the most important points over the course of those and bring them back to your current job or new employer. If advancing in your career as an internal auditor and building your base of auditing knowledge is important to you, this class is a must.
