Internal Auditor Training

Published by admin on

There is little guidance as to what Internal Auditor Training or 2nd Party Auditor Training should include. There are also no recognised standards for Internal Auditor Training. The only documented requirement is that internal auditors shall be trained and competent. The content and duration of these courses are very much left to the supplier to decide. So you’ll find courses running from just a few hours to a few days. At RKBC we know what good Auditor Training should include, but recognise that all customers are different. That’s why we tailor training to suit your specific needs based on the following contents:

  1. Purpose of Internal Audits

  3. Audit Types
  4. Audit Finding Types
  5. ISO standards compared
  6. Internal auditing requirements compared
