Audit Process

Seminar Overview  

Seminar Objectives/Course Content. Are we really meeting the challenges of today?  How do we, both as a professional and as a department “Measure Up” to the significant changes taking place in the internal audit profession?

“Yester -Years” tools and internal audit practices will not get you through “Tomorrow.”  Whether you are an electrician, a teacher or an Internal Auditor, a properly stocked “tool box” makes the difference between success and failure.    

To assist in applying lessons learned in the “real work place,” the discussions will be “framed” around the way we do business – planning, fieldwork, reporting and follow-up phases.  For example, in the Planning Phase we will first identify what exactly should be accomplished and then “drill down” to make sure we are accomplishing each task effectively, efficiently and in accordance with professional expectations.

Topics discussed include:

Due Professional Care
–Assessing Risk
–Risks & Controls
