Internal Audit 101: Introduction to Internal Auditing Seminar

Internal audits are an important requirement for effective corporate governance. The internal auditor is at the front line in evaluating management's internal control, assessing the accuracy of financial information, and ensuring compliance with laws and regulations. Learn how to perform these important duties and comply with the professional auditing standards.

"Internal Audit 101" is the perfect CPE course to provide an introduction to internal auditing to someone new to the field or to someone who has not had formal training. This course provides an overview of the "audit life cycle", including audit planning and risk assessment, conducting fieldwork, interviews, walkthroughs and tests of controls, and audit reporting and follow-up. We provide the latest guidance for a risk-based, top-down audit approach, key audit terminology, audit workpaper documentation, and "selling" the benefits of the audit.

Designed for internal auditors who are new or have limited experience in the audit profession, this seminar will walk the participants through the basics of being an internal auditor. It is ideal for auditors who want to ensure that they follow approved, prescribed audit standards and apply the appropriate audit tools and techniques.

This timely, one-day CPE training seminar is designed for the new internal auditor and others who have to create an effective audit plan, perform the audits, generate workpapers, and effectively communicate the results.
