Individual Benefits

Until now, modern and on-demand assurance training and accreditation was unavailable to the global assurance community. Organisations were unable to verify assurance reviewer credentials, and individual assurance professionals were unable to access cost effective, and readily available, assurance training that recognised their assurance reviewer capabilities and experience.

Global Digital Assurance provides best practice assurance reviewer training, with globally recognised accreditations, which enables independent and public sector assurance professionals to be formally recognised and accredited, for their capabilities and proven assurance reviewer skills.
