This matrix uses 10 core competencies which details the skills and abilities to be demonstrated by roles in the industry: New Internal Auditor, Experienced Internal Auditor, CAE and Sole Internal Auditor.

The competencies have been grouped into three areas: Internal Audit Skills, Personal Skills and Business Knowledge.
