All internal auditors share a common experience – each must navigate their own career path in internal auditing. In 2014, Richard F. Chambers chronicled his journey in an award winning book titled: Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail. In the next 7 years, Chambers would go on to author 2 more original manuscripts - the award winning Trusted Advisors: Key Attributes of Outstanding Internal Auditors in 2017, and Agents of Change: Internal Auditors in an Era of Disruption in 2021. In addition, he released the award winning update to his first manuscript in 2019 titled: The Speed of Risk: Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail 2nd Edition.
In 2021, Chambers and The UAE Internal Auditors Association announced an exclusive partnership to bring the vital messages in Chambers’ books to life in a series of seminars for internal auditors and chief audit executives.
The Audit Trail Academy is comprised of 3 two-day seminars offered in a live classroom setting. Participants will receive 16-CPEs and a certificate of completion at the conclusion of each seminar. Participants who successfully complete all three seminars will be awarded a certificate of graduate recognition signaling they are a graduate of The Audit Trail Academy. The three courses to be offered in 2022 exclusively in Dubai UAE are:
- Auditing at The Speed of Risk
- Becoming an Internal Audit Trusted Advisor
- Being an Internal Audit Agent of Change
