Auditor Focused Virtual Event

The Art of Internal Audit Report Writing - 8 CPEs



Offered on Thursday-Friday in 2021

Audit Reports can significantly loose their effectiveness if not written professionally with a focused purpose.

Communication for the auditor is a fine art and once perfected can take on more importance than the audit itself. One of the primary responsibilities of the internal audit function is to communicate the need for the audited area to change, based upon an assessment of risk and controls.

Persuasive communication is an essential skill for all auditors. Each internal audit activity carries with it the need to objectively communicate and operate within the elements of change. The auditor's communication skills start with an understanding of the objectives of the audit stakeholders. The auditor must use both oral and written communications to move the organization to more effectively manage all relevant risks.

Auditors will come out of this training with better oral and written communication skills. The presentation covers all types and levels of internal audit reporting. By participating in this course, auditors in all sectors and at all levels will learn the components of communicating an effective audit finding. You will learn how to organize reports that meet professional standards, elicit management action, and communicate crucial, strategic messages to executives and board-level readers.

Our instructors have written and critiqued hundreds of audit and business reports. In this highly interactive CPE seminar, you will learn how to eliminate the administrative burden of writing reports and produce reports that are easy to write, easy to read, and easy to understand.

This timely, one-day CPE seminar is designed for internal auditors and others with a need to create effective business and audit reports.

Seminar Schedule Experts Providing CPE Training Events

Corporate Compliance Seminars (CCS) was created by experts who enjoy providing CPE training events. All our experts have years of experience in providing training courses, workshops and consulting on internal controls, internal auditing, information technology, cybersecurity and accounting related subjects. We have focused on SOX, COSO, PCAOB, COBIT, CMMI, GRC, GAAP, IFRS, AICPA, GAO, NAIC, ISO, and IIA Standards. We are your best source for continuing professional education (CPE).

Our programs, live in-person, webinar and on-demand, provide CPE for professionals with CPA, CGA, CIA, CFE, CISA, CMA and CA designations. CCS is focused on providing the best learning programs in using three distinct distribution channels: live in-person events, virtual webinar events and on-demand self-study e-learning.

Corporate Compliance Seminars presents CPE to a range of professionals, auditors, accountants, finance staff, compliance personnel, information technology (IT) professionals, Boards of Directors and Audit Committees. We examine the details of risk management, Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance, Model Audit Rule (MAR) compliance, auditing, internal controls, cybersecurity and compliance, and fraud prevention and detection.

Within the U.S.A. marketplace, Corporate Compliance Seminars allows the attendee to earn NASBA CPE credit.

Our events focus on the details of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX), Internal Controls over Financial Reporting (ICFR), Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) Internal Control Frameworks, ISACA's Control Objectives over Information Technology (COBIT), Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL), Open Compliance & Ethics Group's (OCEG) Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) methodology, PCAOB's Auditing Standard 5 (AS5), AICPA auditing standards, and NAIC regulatory model regulations and acts .

Our live in-person events are generally presented in a small classroom setting with two to five attendees. Over the last few weeks, we have come to the understand we need to provide distant e-learning events. We are now in the process of moving all our content to an online available status. We have created distant e-learning opportunities using both a virtual webinar event approach and on-demand e-learning self-study modules. These two e-learning approaches: webinars and on-demand self-study with extended web access to our content into the global continuing professional development (CPD) marketplace. In the webinar e-learning events we will limit the number of students to maximize the interaction between the live instructor and attendees. The on-demand self-study e-learning modules will be created and offered to meet the NASBA CPE credit requirements .

Our seminars provide CPE for the CPA, CFE, CIA, CISA, auditors and others with effective and engaging internal audit training courses.

Our instructors have had direct experience in the following industries: financial activities, bank, insurance, healthcare, construction, leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, mining and oil & gas extraction, manufacturing, educational, government agencies, transportation, software, technical, hi-tech and agricultural.
