IMA? (Institute of Management Accountants) is hosting two essential COSO live certificate workshops at its Montvale, N.J., global headquarters as part of a week-long event in April.

The workshops will take participants through the COSO tools using real-world examples and live classroom training, enabling them to develop a more successful system of internal control and better manage organizational risk.

COSO Internal Control-Integrated Framework Live Certificate Workshop (25.5 NASBA CPE)
  • Monday-Wednesday, April 22-24
