Internal Control

Essentially, there are few activities within an organization that are more important to its success than maintaining internal control. Internal auditing adds value to the organization, as it provides management with assurance that adequate controls are in place, that they working as intended, and that any failures are investigated and remedied in a timely manner. This course introduces learners to types of controls, and how to interpret internal control concepts and types of controls. It describes the impact of organizational culture on the overall control environment and identifies the impact of organizational culture on individual engagement risks and controls. Finally, learners will gain an understanding of how to use an internal control framework to examine the effectiveness and efficiency of internal controls, and to apply globally accepted internal control frameworks appropriate to the organization.

To conduct fieldwork, internal auditors carry out both manual and CAAT information-gathering protocols, consider various sampling techniques, conduct data analysis, document work via work papers, and finally, draw conclusions. This course provides an overview of the major processes and procedures that an internal auditor may perform while conducting engagement fieldwork. Participants will finish this course with a clear understanding of process engagement fieldwork, beginning with gathering information and understanding the various techniques used by internal auditors to gather that information. Participants will learn that information gathering is followed by data analysis, and will be exposed to the wide variety of tools and techniques available for gathering and analyzing information. Finally, participants will come away from this course with the understanding that from the beginning to the end of fieldwork, proper documentation is essential.
