Conference details

Designing and implementing an effective system of internal control can be challenging. Adapting to rapidly changing business models, new technologies or globalization requires the system to be agile. Also, an internal control system requires the use of judgment to monitor and assess its effectiveness, and the system needs to provide insight on the application of controls.

Through a blend of self-paced learning and live, interactive training, the new COSO Internal Control Certificate offers you a unique opportunity to develop your expertise in designing, implementing and monitoring a system of internal control. This certificate includes an exam to verify that you have gained the knowledge and skills critical to this program, plus, you’ll earn up to 25.5 hours of CPE.


  • Recognize ways to identify, analyze, and respond to risks in your business
  • Develop confidence in your system of internal control
  • Learn from experts and share your experiences with your peers
