Internal Audit Quality

Your Competitive Advantage

Chief Audit Executives need to be on the front foot when it comes to Internal Audit Quality. Top of the list of failings by Internal Audit functions is understanding Quality.  If you were asked to produce the Quality Assurance and Improvement Program document for your Internal Audit function, what would you produce?

Many Internal Audit functions have elements of a Quality Assurance and Improvement Program, but not a documented program where the results are regularly reported to the Audit Committee and senior management. Which leads us to the External Assessment requirement of the Internal Auditing Standards requiring an independent review of Internal Audit at least once every 5 years.

This practical and interactive training course will show you how to implement a Quality Assurance and Improvement Program, together with cost-effective ways to conform to the 5-year Quality Assessment requirement. This includes practical tools you can take away and immediately apply in your own Internal Audit function. The course is suitable for all Internal Auditors and culminates in a test of objective which, when successfully completed, entitles the participant to the IIA-Australia Accreditation in Internal Quality Assessment Validation.
