About Internal Audit Technician (IAT)
Share |

The Internal Audit Technician (IAT) is the first level qualification that all internal auditors entering the profession should obtain. The content of focused training modules and structured workplace training provide excellent background to candidates starting out in internal auditing or wanting to improve their internal audit skills.

The IAT program comprises 8 training modules facilitated by the Academy and presented by experienced, well qualified presenters at regular intervals over the 24 month period of the program. These modules of 3 days duration each are supplementary to the structured workplace training.

The structured workplace training is monitored and assessed in the workplace by evaluators. As the IAT program is competency based, it may be extended beyond the minimum period of 24 months, depending on the progress of the individual trainee.

The program is generic, but flexible enough to cater for sector specific needs. A learnership Agreement, prescribed by the relevant Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA), may be signed by the 3 parties involved - the learner (trainee), the employer, and the training provider and is lodged with the relevant SETA to which your organisation pay their skills development levy.

The Internal Audit Technician is registered under the jurisdiction of the Department of Higher Education and Training and the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) at NQF Level 7.

Entrance Requirements
