Part 1: Fundamentals of Internal Auditing

This seminar introduces new internal auditors to their role and responsibilities and highlights best practices and provides a refresher on the standards to delegates with experience. The role of the internal audit department is explained within the broader context of assurance provision highlighting the profession’s current challenges and reviewing some of the events that have led to the current emphasis on auditing and assurance. The seminar teaches the basic tools and techniques necessary to carry out audit assignments together with accepted best practice approaches and provides a safe and comfortable environment in which to practice with specifically designed exercise case studies. The IIA Performance standards are referenced throughout the course.

Part 2: Audit Report Writing

Writing an effective audit report is a challenging activity as the report has to satisfy the differing needs of the different readers. Report writing is a key skill for auditors and a skill that doesn’t often come naturally to them. Auditors collect and analyse detailed information and are generally more comfortable with reporting at a detailed level as opposed to delivering the key messages to senior managers that focus on risk. Audit reports often provide senior managers with a detailed list of what hasn’t been done well rather than highlighting the most significant issues and concentrating on what needs to be completed to remediate any discrepancies. This two-day course will guide delegates through the basic elements of the report writing process from thinking about the needs of their readers, to selecting the most appropriate style and tone and writing with clarity to get results. Delegates will have the opportunity to bring extracts of their own reports with them to work on and review in the context of the ideas presented. Exercises will be provided in each session as appropriate.
