​​Course Overview:

Designing and implementing an effective system of internal control can be challenging, and adapting to rapidly changing business models, new technologies, or globalization requires that system to be agile. An internal control system requires the use of judgment to monitor and assess its effectiveness, and it must provide insight on the application of controls.​

The new Certificate, available in two formats – one combining a blend of self-paced learning and live classroom training, and an OnDemand format – offers you a unique opportunity to develop an expertise in designing, implementing, and conducting an internal control system. This program takes you through the Framework from start to finish and, through the use of real-world scenarios, allows you to:

  • Understand the principles-based approach.
  • Identify and analyze risks.
  • Develop confidence in the internal control system.
  • Learn from experts and share your experiences with your peers.
