"Excellent course. I learned a great deal and Dennis did a great job adapting to the on-line delivery method for the course. "
Senior Internal Auditor, Regional Bank, Charlotte NC, USA

The role of internal audit is changing as a consequence of the Revised 3 Lines Model from the IIA and the impact of the current crisis. Together these have changed business models within banking, as well as the risks and priorities that will impact or lead to success. Internal audit also needs to change to take account of the increased focus on the embedding of risk and control processes within the 1st line and the increased use of artificial intelligence within the business.

During this advanced intensive audit writing program senior internal auditors and audit managers will explore risk-based internal audit approaches and techniques which take account of these changes so that they are properly efficient and effective.


"The instructor was well prepared, knowledgeable and very enjoyable. Never enough time to take it all in."
Senior Audit Manager, State Bank, Chicago, USA
