Management Audit’s past  CIA® review courses

In October 2000 delegates attended the first three-day CIA Review Course in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, UK. Arranged by Management Audit and led by professors Andrew Chambers and Jeffrey Ridley, the course was based on similar successful courses run by both professors at the South Bank University, London. Each day of the course covered the syllabi of Parts I, II and III of the CIA®examinations, linked to knowledge for today’s and tomorrow’s internal auditing. Delegates registered from Sweden and Kuwait.  The course programme also included daily mock examinations for delegates to test their knowledge of internal auditing processes and management. Results of the examinations were discussed at group level. Individual assessments and study guidance was sent to each delegate after the course.

Delegates have now attended these courses from the UK, Slovak Republic, Republic of Cameroon, Germany, Czech Republic, Sweden, Kuwait, Iceland, France and Belgium.  From 2004 the course programmes have been completely updated to cover the new CIA syllabus for the examinations in May 2004.
