UPDATED! Training Quality Assurance Review (EN)

External Quality Assessment for Internal Audit – Webinar (up-dated).  

We are re-structuring this course to allow the possibility of a 2-day course and a 1-day course. 

Are you involved in, or responsible for, establishing and/or improving the quality of the Internal Audit function in your organization? Would you, as an auditor or service provider in the Internal Audit area, or from a different perspective, like to learn more about or gain experience with Quality Assessment Reviews? Or do you, as a CAE, audit director, manager or Board / Audit Committee member, need to learn how the performance of the Internal Audit Function can be evaluated and improved?

This training focuses mainly on helping the participants to better enable their Internal Audit function to comply with Standard 1300, with an emphasis on realizing the advantages of an effective Quality Assurance and Improvement Program while back in their own department.

The 2-day course – EQA Certification course - is 8-9 December. 

The first day concentrates at what you need to do to become a qualified EQA assessor, learning how to judge “fully conforms” with IIA standards to “does not conform” with IIA standards. 
We use a detailed case study and exercises to look at some areas in detail and alongside this you will receive an IIA global assessor pack. It will enable you do carry out EQAs as an assessor but would give the deepest knowledge if you are preparing for an EQA (because you will have the same training as the assessor!) 

The 1-day course – Preparing for an EQA - starts on 9 December. 

This day concentrates on how you prepare for an external quality assessment if you are an internal audit department. 
It looks at the common problem areas and offers practical ways to stay “on the right side of the line”. This day also looks at the EQA process in practical terms, starting with the preparations you should do ahead of any EQA. We look at how to select an EQA assessor and some of the “ground rules” needed to make sure the EQA process is a genuinely positive process that adds value. 
You must do days 1 and 2 to get the EQA certification, so you can do an EQA assessment. You only need to do day 2 to feel well prepared for an EQA.
