ONLINE INTERNAL CONTROLS TRAINING COURSE
An internal controls program establishes a set of standards for handling the financial operations of an organization. Internal controls are critical to providing reliable financial reporting that equips management to make sound business decisions and keeps the operation in compliance with laws and regulations.
Well-conceived internal controls help an organization attain its goals while protecting its assets and employees. The most successful internal controls programs achieve a balance between being neither too lax nor too restrictive. At either extreme, they can lessen productivity and make day-to-day work and transactions needlessly complex.
Essential to every internal-controls program is that employees receive training in internal-control standards, and have a solid understanding of their personal role in the program to help prevent problems from occurring and detect issues as they arise.
