This comprehensive course served as a great overview and refresher, reinforcing the significance of establishing and maintaining an effective and highly-respected Internal Audit function within the organization. As a senior business operations leader in my organization, this course also provided me with additional insights into the importance of the IA function as well as viewing a few things through a slightly different lens, which will undoubtedly make me a better business partner to support my cross-functional IA partners. I always enjoy Lynn's courses, and her supporting materials are unparalleled - nicely done!

This course was very informative. There were some cases offered and examples offered from personal experience and Ms Cooper's case but I would have liked more concrete examples or cases to help make this material more relatable. The repetition was helpful but some of it could have been replaced by more substance. This course has great potential.

Taking this course would help me to develop the strong foundation for internal Audit function, and I think it would be better to give me more examples to further understand the essence of the internal audit control, because my supervisor sometimes ask me to design some internal control for the safty of the company administration.

Fantastic course. I've taken ALL of Lynn's classes and although some of the information from this class appeared on other courses, this course brought everything together. I'm not in IA but this course made me appreciate their position.

I agree with another review of the course i've seen. Class and information is great, however the questions involve too many "which is these is not" true types of questions which can add confusion to the reader.
