HÀ NỘI — Thousands of auditors have been trained over the years, aiming to improve human resources for Việt Nam's audit industry.

According to the Audit Training School under the State Audit Office of Việt Nam (SAV), in the last three years, from 2017 to 2019, nearly 140 training courses and seminars had been held, attracting more than 6,000 auditors.

The school's training programmes include professional training for auditors, skills in management, leadership and specialist auditors in many fields including public debt, tax, environment, finance, accounting, auditing, construction, transportation, irrigation, architecture, economic management, state management and law.

The structure of the State Audit Office has been developed comprehensively in terms of quantity and quality. 

The office pays more attention to training and improving human resources and accelerating the application of information technology.

The co-ordination with related agencies and materials for the training courses is also improved.

The training programmes have been implemented to meet the tasks of the sector in each period as well as the demand of auditors.

The training courses also include in-class and online classes.

Improving the quality of human resources is identified as the main goal of the industry.

According to SAV, state auditors' training activities should be oriented in order to improve unification with relevant professional activities and the training quality to benefit the development of the industry.

Content, programmes and training methods should be improved to enhance experiences from learners themselves rather than information provided by teachers in order to serve the actual job.

Training plans should also suit the practical demand of the industry.

In order to meet the training demand in the future, SAV continues to innovate training content and methods towards approaching and applying more modern and professional audit methods.

Financial resources for training should also be prioritised to develop human resources as well as the development strategy of SAV to 2030. 

More than 2,100 employees are working at SAV. This figure is expected to increase to 2,600-2,700 in the 2030-35 period. — VNS
