Program Description


This one-day program is designed to assist an organization’s Certificate of Recognition (COR®) Internal Auditor in successfully planning, performing, summarizing, and submitting the COR® Audit.

This workshop-based program provides an opportunity for the participant to apply their knowledge of the COR® Audit Tool to exercises based on scenarios and case studies and to practice all four phases of the COR® Audit process:

1. Prepare
2. Perform
3. Summarize
4. Submit

Participants must have taken Basic Auditing Principles before taking COR® Internal Auditor. Since the program content is connected, this will provide the best opportunity to understand the COR® requirements.
