What Students Say About Us

As a teacher in Sri Lanka, I found the Mastering Internal and External Audits workshop extremely beneficial for my job. The workshop covered the rules and regulations related to internal and external audits, which are essential for all institutions in the state sector. I also learned how to acknowledge queries and prepare correct and acceptable answers, which is crucial for facing sales. This workshop is a must-attend for any Sri Lankan teacher responsible for handling internal and external audits.
testimonial 1
as an accountant working for a government agency in Sri Lanka. The workshop provided me with the tools and strategies to handle audits efficiently and effectively. I learned about internal and external audit posts of government agencies and how they affect the overall planning of the company. The section on optimizing query size was particularly useful, as I now feel much more confident in answering queries during audits.
testimonial 3
was an eye-opener for me as an interested party. I learned about the importance of internal and external audits for institutions and how to collaborate with audit staff to optimize benefits. The workshop covered the entire audit process, including the sample audit queries for internal and external audits.
