There's no supporting material. If this is a course on managing an internal audit function, it's for people with limited availability so having access to review the content versus letting a video play and rewinding and fast forwarding is pretty annoying. Material and instructor are fine, but some takeaway information is somewhat expected?

I am expecting practical stuff like how to establish IAA from the scratch in a organization. Templates of policies and procedures, guidance on preparing Charter, Strategic plan etc
