2017 Participant: The course gave me a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of Internal Auditing. We had a lot of opportunity to collaborate and discuss concepts and practise with other participants and share individual experiences. Definitely worthwhile

2016 Participant: The course resources were very comprehensive and included lots of applicable case studies and examples. Group exercises and interactivity were really beneficial. I took a lot away from this course.
