The IIA's Core Curriculum: Understanding Internal Auditing

Modality Type: Online

The IIA’s Core Curriculum seminar course is a comprehensive course that offers you a unique opportunity to develop a foundational and fundamental understanding of the internal audit profession, the internal audit process, and how the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) serves as the guiding compass for the internal audit activity.

Whether you are pursuing an understanding of the internal audit nomenclature, principles, and standards because you are an external auditor transitioning to internal auditing; on the staff of a new internal audit department that needs to prepare for building a quality assurance improvement program; or perhaps an individual preparing for the Internal Audit Practitioner (IAP) designation, this course delivers an enhanced level of knowledge of the professional practice of internal auditing.

This comprehensive course begins with an introduction to The Institute of Internal Auditors (The IIA); the widely recognized guidance found in the IPPF, including the Standards; and compares and contrasts internal audit to external audit, and assurance services to consulting services, while also helping you to understand the purpose, authority, and responsibility of the internal audit activity and the concept of governance, risk management, and control. This course also provides high-level guidance on how to communicate conclusions, reports, and overall opinions; disseminate results; identify areas that are taking on critical amounts of risk; and establish action plans and monitoring programs.
