IA003 : Effective Internal Audit Reporting

7.00 CPE Hours (Others)
Classroom

Programme Objective

The successful completion of internal audit works through effective reporting is as important as the audit fieldwork itself. Without effective reporting, intended objectives and conclusions may be misconstrued and/or misunderstood, and worse, be resulted in the rejection of the reports.

Therefore, this course aims to provide the participants with the necessary knowledge and skills for effective internal audit (IA) reporting. The course will take the participants through the process leading to the reporting and the actual reporting, and further actions needed after the reporting phase. Discussions and exercises will be used during the course.
