Malang, 9 August 2023 – at the Aria Gajayana Hotel, the Bromo Room is the venue for the 2023 Brawijaya University Internal Auditor Training held by the Brawijaya University Quality Assurance Institute (LPM). This event aims to improve human resources to support Internal Quality Audit (AIM) activities.
Quality Internal Audit (AIM) and Corrective Action Request (PTK) are one of the methods taken by Universitas Brawijaya in maintaining the quality of education. The party that plays an important role in maintaining the implementation of the AIM and PTK activities is the existence of internal auditors in each Faculty or School in Universitas Brawijaya. Starting from these conditions, LPM held internal auditor training in order to increase the number of active internal auditors.
The internal auditor training design process begins with carrying out a needs survey for the Faculty and Postgraduate School regarding the current condition of active internal auditors. Based on the number of active internal auditors and the number of units that need to be audited, LPM determines the composition of the number of training participants as follows: 2 participants from the Faculty of Law (FH), 7 participants from the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB), no participants from the Faculty of Administrative Sciences (FIA) ), 1 participant from the Faculty of Agriculture (FP), 3 participants from the Faculty of Animal Husbandry (FAPET), 3 participants from the Faculty of Engineering (FT), 3 participants from the Faculty of Medicine (FK), 1 participant from the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences (FPIK), 6 participants from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMIPA), 3 participants from the Faculty of Agricultural Technology (FTP), 4 participants from the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences (FISIP), 1 participant from the Faculty of Cultural Sciences (FIB), 1 participant from the Faculty Veterinary Medicine (FKH), 3 participants from the Faculty of Computer Science (FILKOM), 1 participant from the Faculty of Dentistry (FKG), 1 participant from the Postgraduate School (SP), 3 participants from the Vocational Faculty (FV) and 3 participants from the Faculty of Health Sciences Society (FIKES).
LPM started the internal auditor training with an official opening ceremony by the Deputy Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Prof. Dr. Ir. Imam Santoso, MP. by conveying the importance of the role of internal auditors in maintaining and improving the quality of education and services at Brawijaya University. “Internal Quality Audit (AIM) is an important instrument in assessing the effectiveness and efficiency of various processes on our campus. Through this training, we are trying to prepare a team of internal auditors who are reliable and skilled in identifying potential improvements and developments,” said Prof. Priest.
He also emphasized that this internal auditor training is part of the university’s commitment to maintaining high quality standards in all aspects of its operations. By having a team of competent internal auditors, the university hopes to continue to make continuous improvements to achieve better academic performance.
It is hoped that this internal auditor training will not only increase the competence of participants, but will also have a positive impact on improving the quality of academic and administrative services at Universitas Brawijaya. With a team of trained internal auditors, universities can continue to adapt to changes that occur in the world of education and ensure that all operational aspects continue to run according to established quality standards.
