COSO Internal Control Certificate Program offers you a unique opportunity to develop your expertise in designing, implementing and monitoring a system of internal control and a digital badge to display and share with your professional network.
Designing and implementing an effective system of internal control can be
challenging, and adapting to rapidly changing business models, new
technologies, or globalisation requires that system to be agile. An internal
control system requires the use of judgment to monitor and assess its
effectiveness, and it must provide insight on the application of controls.
The new Certificate, through a blend of self-paced learning and live classroom training, offers you a unique opportunity to develop an expertise in designing, implementing, and conducting an internal control system. This 25,5 credit program takes you through the Framework from start to finish and, through the use of real-world scenarios, allows you to:
- Understand the principles-based approach.
- Identify and analyse risks.
- Develop confidence in the internal control system.
- Learn from experts and share your experiences with your peers
Upon completion of the pre-work (two online modules) and the training program, you’ll be eligible to sit for the exam and earn your certificate.

Pre-work: Two self-study modules that takes approximately 4,5 hours to complete
