How will this course benefit you?

This is one of two IIA courses designed to assist participants with their internal audit activity’s ability to comply with Standard 1300 — the foundation of QAIPs — and, more importantly, realize the full benefit of a high quality QAIP.

It is recommended that participants take Building a Sustainable Quality Program or have equivalent experience as a prerequisite to this course, as well as an understanding of the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF).

As an organization grows and its internal processes change and evolve, its quality monitoring process must keep pace. To ensure consistent quality in this dynamic environment, an ongoing commitment to growth and improvement is essential.

The required elements of a Quality Assurance and Improvement Program (QAIP) include periodic internal assessments and external assessments to demonstrate conformance with The IIA’s International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. In addition, a quality QAIP can provide evidence to the audit committee and management that the internal audit activity is efficient, effective, and adding value. It can also build stakeholder confidence and document a commitment to quality, leading practices, and the internal auditors’ mindset for professionalism.

This course is designed to help you learn how to perform an effective external assessment and/or periodic internal assessment of an internal audit activity. If your primary interest is periodic internal assessment, you can determine which external assessment option (full external assessment or self-assessment with independent external validation) will work best for you and help you prepare for an external assessment. If your primary interest is external assessment, you can use this course to satisfy part of the requirements for external assessor qualifications. ("Successful completion of The IIA’s quality assessment training course,” PA 1312, no. 7.)

Guided by knowledgeable facilitators with extensive experience in quality assessment activities, participants will:

  • Examine the process flow and tools in the new IIA Quality Assessment (QA) Manual and discuss how it can be used to conform with the Standards, while identifying opportunities for improvement
  • Practice using the QA Manual tools to plan, perform, and evaluate the results of an external quality assessment case study
  • Design an efficient and effective periodic internal assessment program for their internal audit activity
  • Evaluate the external quality assessment options and determine which option will work best for their internal audit activity.
