Internal Auditing

Internal Auditing

This course provides a look into the basics of auditing. Audit performance, auditor behavior, and auditee preconceptions play a major part in performing a successful audit. This course walks you through the auditing process, the steps in the audit cycle, and helps you identify and understand how human behaviors influence the audit. Participants will practice asking each other questions, probing into events and possible issues. By the end of the course students should understand that, as auditors, they are looking for evidence of compliance, documenting the entire process, and working hand-in-hand with auditees so they understand the process and the results.
