Internal Auditing Fundamentals


Understand the fundamentals of the internal audit function and recognize key risks when preparing for an internal audit.

Everyone hears the phrase 'internal audit,' but they don't understand what it means. Many people confuse internal auditing with external financial statement audits believing they only involve financial issues. However, the reality is there are many types of internal audit processes that are not only compliance-oriented but are opportunities to review and improve processes and maximize efficiencies. This course will include information on what internal audits are, the benefits of an internal audit, how to perform internal audits, how to report your findings and conclusions to management, and how to use internal audits as a management tool. The material will include real-life examples and the benefits of getting in the field (site visits, calls, and observations) to maximize those benefits.
