This two-day course helps companies internal audit teams determine their criteria to use for their internal audit, the internal audit protocols following the ISO 19011:2011 standard, to establish their internal audit system and to manage it effectively. The course, if held at a site, has exercises for the team to actually perform a mini internal audit on the site while the students learn how to apply the concepts they have learned in the class. Students will learn how to gather data from multiple sources, interpret that data, apply risk based thinking skills to determine a risk to the product or process, and to communicate the risk and findings to those not at the audit. The course also covers how to establish an internal auditor evaluation system and to ensure the internal audit process has a continuous improvement process established. Students will learn about establishing internal audit company objectives and to be able to measure them to see the effectiveness of movement towards company goals (business metrics and working cultures).
