Our course material was developed by our experienced auditors, who had been in the profession for many years. As a result, they complied the theoretical and practical training materials to reflect real experience as much as possible and to prepare the auditors for unexpected situations too. Our training was developed by highly qualified experts with the aim of sharing knowledge on a professional level and with the purpose of training similarly good professionals, who may become manpower of the profession in demand not only in the domestic market but also abroad.


Two-thirds of our training consists of exercises solved in a computer-assisted way. Prior to the practical tasks, the necessary theoretical knowledge is presented by the instructors via presentations. Participants will primarily be involved in simulations, in which they can practice teamwork and individual functions. Tasks are built on each other during the course and gradually become more difficult to help the participants for situations they will typically face during real audits. Participants will be able to perform increasingly complex tasks based on their acquired knowledge and experience of previous days. It is an important part of the training that at the end of each day there is an opportunity to consult the instructor, so the participants will have the chance to clarify any questions or suggestions they might have had during the day.
