IIA Global OnDemand Training

The current Corona situation has shown us how important it is to always remain flexible. The office workplace has been replaced by the home office, face-to-face meetings now take place via Zoom and group work is also implemented virtually. It is more important than ever to be up to date. For this, it is essential to constantly educate oneself. The IIA's Global OnDemand Training allows members and non-members to learn at their own pace, at any time and any place with an internet connection. Numerous online courses are offered on cutting-edge internal audit topics. Currently, for example, we offer courses on "Fraud" or "Developing a risk-based audit plan". You can find out more here.
