In recent times, audit functions in most forward-looking organizations have adopted a risk-based approach that is truly business oriented by focusing their efforts and deploying resources on significant risk that impacts overall business performance. The objective of this course is to present an opportunity for prospective internal auditors and people currently working as internal auditors to be exposed to technical skills and the requisite body of knowledge to enable them to conduct a basic risk-based internal audit. Internal auditors are expected to add value by collaborating with the management team in an organization and proactively identify and mitigate against unforeseen events that can impact negatively on the operations and objectives of their organization. In terms of the new definition internal auditors are also required to evaluate and audit risk management, controls, and the governance processes. The internal auditor is expected to assist management by providing assurance as to whether the systems they have implemented are working as intended and whether the risks that threaten the company’s objectives have been identified and are being properly managed.
