It's important to make sure you record your CPE activity correctly so that if you're asked to supply evidence of your compliance, you can supply it with ease. The key is to set some objectives beforehand, and then reflect on what you've learnt and think about how you will apply the knowledge. Our handy template provides a simple format to record your CPE activity. Below, you'll see some examples of how to use it.
When you attend a Chartered IIA training course or event you will receive a certificate of attendance, which can be submitted as evidence. You do not need to write up the activity separately.
Chartered IIA 'Open Course' on Professional Ethics and the Internal Auditor – free web based lunch time learning course, available on the Chartered IIA's website.
1 March 2017
I was seeking to understand more about professional ethics and how I can ensure as an internal audit professional I apply the IIA Code of Ethics and to consider the values an internal auditor should demonstrate.
Professional ethics are the moral rules and values that govern the way a group of people perform a task or use resources. The IIA’s professional ethics are enshrined in the Code of Ethics, authoritative guidance for the internal audit profession from IIA Global. There are four principles: integrity, objectivity, confidentiality and competency.
Professional ethics are there to protect me, my internal audit function, my employer and the public. I will ensure that the way I and my team work adheres to the IIA Code of Ethics.
Next steps will be to ensure my team are fully aware of the enhancements in 2015 to the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF), particularly the aspects which are more challenging to deliver within our organisation type, and consider appropriate strategies for addressing these.
