Program Description

This 1-day program provides an introduction to the fundamentals of auditing and how to apply these principles while going through the Certificate of Recognition (COR™) Audit process. It focuses on auditing principles that are common to all organizational audits, while using material and examples specific to the COR™ Audit Tool and its elements.

This program is one of four mandatory training requirements for the Certificate of Recognition (COR™) program. It is specifically designed for the individual who has been designated by the employer to act as COR™ Internal Auditor and who will be performing the COR™ audit within the organization.

Participants must take Basic Auditing Principles before taking COR™ Internal Auditor. Since the program content in the programs is connected, this will provide the best opportunity to understand the COR™ requirements.
