Geopolitical risk and the role of the internal auditor

“This course has provided me with a greater depth of understanding of sources of geopolitical risk and I’m far better placed to support my organisation develop its own awareness.”




Auditing cash flow management

The course was among the best that I have attended with the Chartered IIA. It deepened my knowledge and understanding of the cash management/Treasury function, its activities, its criticality to the business and, perhaps most important, the controls that internal auditors should expect to see in this area. Raj leveraged his wealth of personal experience on this topic to bring the subject matter to life in an engaging and insightful manner. I’m very glad I signed up for this course.

An introduction to professional internal auditing

This course exceeded my expectations. I learnt extremely valuable knowledge that I will apply to my practical working day. Stephen was amazing in his delivery style, fun and engaging.


Heads of internal audit – induction masterclass

"The course was excellent from beginning to end: the content, presentation, and discussions were so informative and helpful. There were only three of us on the course and I believe that made a big difference from a virtual point of view."


The basics that matter - scoping and work programme design

Having attended The Basics that Matter course, myself and all the attendees came away quite invigorated about going back to our roles and
remembering the basis of scoping audits. James Paterson delivered an engaging presentation and made the subject very insightful. We also now have
a number of new tools in our toolkit for scoping our audits. Excellent

Data analytics for auditors | Internal audit analytics - data and visualisation

Today, audit teams want to maximise the use of data in their audit programmes. Many audit teams are doing some data analytics already, and most teams have a range of skills, experience and interest.  But others struggle to get buy-in or are not sure where and how to start or are struggling to make the most of their existing tools.

In collaboration with our training Partners, Technology4Business and Mindgrove, the Chartered IIA is delighted to bring you two CPE-accredited audit specific data analytics programmes to help you wherever you are in your data analytics journey.

Data analytics for auditors

Designed for those new to data analytics, as well as those with some experience but are self-taught, this course will provide auditors with practical knowledge and skills for embedding data analytics into their audit work.

Delivered via Teams over 6 x 3 hour sessions, the course is a practical introduction to data analytics and covers:

  • understanding data and data structure to enable auditors to “talk the language of data”
  • practical advice on how data analytics can be effectively introduced into your audit team and the audit process
  • includes how to plan and document your audit analytics
  • includes practical activities and skills to obtain, prepare and analyse data (using Excel) facilitated discussions about WHERE, HOW, data analysis can be used in YOUR audit plan
  • includes post-training “surgeries” for ongoing discussions and advice as you put the training into practice.
