Fundamentals Of Internal Auditing
In this three-day seminar you will learn the concepts of traditional and operational auditing and gain proven tools and techniques for performing effective audits.

You will gain a solid background in the basics of documenting and evaluating internal control/fieldwork techniques. Using specifically formulated case exercises, you 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 also will focus on and put into practice the communications skills associated with internal auditing: conferencing with customers, writing audit findings, and selling audit recommendations.

What Does An Internal Auditor Do?

An internal auditor is a critical component of a successful, smoothly-running organization. Businesses depend on internal auditors to look closely, honestly and unflinchingly at the inner workings of a company to identify illegal, improper, imprecise or simply impractical policies. They are like a company’s family doctor performing the equivalent of a physical checkup, inspecting all the systems to make sure nothing is wrong and offering recommendations on how to fix anything that is.

How Do I Become An Internal Auditor?

Internal auditors need a strong knowledge of accounting, economics, risk assessment and general business techniques and practices so that they can do their job effectively. Businesses need to have the confidence that the internal auditor has a strong understanding of business and the regulations that surround it to do their job effectively.

While there are no certification requirements to become an entry-level internal auditor, potential employers will usually expect you to have at least a bachelor’s degree in business or a related degree like accounting or finance. Actual work experience as a business accountant or executive can also be helpful. Most Chief Audit Executives have a master’s degree and/or at least eight years of experience. They may have a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) certification, a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) certification or may even be Certified Public Accountants (CPA).

The Fundamentals of Internal Auditing Class is a great complement to a bachelor’s degree in accounting, business or finance if you're looking to shore up your knowledge and understanding of the internal auditor position.

Why Should I Take A Fundamentals of Internal Auditing Class?

Even though there are no specific educational requirements to become an internal auditor, it can be much to your benefit to take a Fundamentals of Internal Auditing class for several reasons. For one, our Fundamentals of Internal Auditing seminar can greatly expand your knowledge and understanding of the processes of internal auditing. For another, having our Fundamentals of Internal Auditing course on your resume can make you more appealing to potential employees.
