Internal Audit Fundamentals Part 2 – Controls, Governance and Assurance

This Internal Audit Fundamentals Part 2 – Controls, Governance and Assurance training course is the second part of a modular three-day programme.  Although we recommend attending all three days, each day can be taken separately. This part of the programme focuses on the crucial assurance aspects of the work that internal auditors carry out and addresses both the theory and the practice of internal controls. Delegates will learn how auditors can add value to their organisation’s governance by carrying out work in the areas of fraud prevention and detection and culture and business ethics.  The course is highly interactive throughout, combining practical tips and advice with quizzes and audit scenario exercises.
