Course Details

The aim of the Certificate in Audit Skills (CAS) is to develop the skills and knowledge of public sector internal auditors in order to carry out effective audits and make a greater contribution to the governance of their organisations. The Certificate is an issues-based course focused on skills enhancement to meet the ever-changing needs of the auditor in delivering an added value and quality service. The programme examines in detail, and in a very practical manner, the key areas of the work of an internal auditor.

A key feature of this programme is that the students take part in a case study that has been designed to simulate the audit process and issues an internal auditor faces when carrying out an audit.

Audience

The course programme has been designed for internal auditors who have some basic knowledge and practical experience of internal audit. The course is not suitable for staff who are new to the function as it is recommended that such staff attend the Institute's Introduction to Internal Audit course and then consider undertaking the CAS when they have acquired experience of undertaking audits.
