Certified Specialist in Internal Controls

An in-depth examination of the critical aspects of internal controls

This series of courses is designed to provide professionals the required understanding and insight into understanding, designing, managing and monitoring internal controls. Internal controls are critical to all aspects of financial, operational and compliance processes and for businesses to succeed in today’s global economy, professionals must be able to quickly distinguish between everyday tasks and internal control requirements.

As business professionals, we sometimes view internal controls as those elements that are handled by the auditors. However, that concept is far from reality. Internal controls should be owned by everyone within the organization. It is imperative that professionals understand their responsibilities for internal controls. But to do that, they must be able to effectively distinguish internal controls from simple day-to-day task or assignments.

This certificate is designed for any professional who is engaged in the ongoing performance of the business. Regardless of the professional’s job title or function as a financial, operational or compliance professional, it is critical they understand the basic concepts around the purpose and impact of internal controls and the basic tenants of segregation of duties. This will help ensure the organization operates as efficiently and effectively as possible.
