Description

Level 2 prepares less-experienced staff for assuming a greater level of responsibility on engagements. Once staff have “gotten their feet wet” by participating on a few engagements, this course will help auditors thoughtfully reflect on their experiences, and help to take basic knowledge to the next level. This course will include many real-life case studies for common audit areas assigned to staff in the first year.

Highlights

  • Perform effective and efficient compilations and reviews
  • Describe the fundamentals of strong analytical procedures on an audit
  • Explain the fundamentals of sampling for attribute testing and substantive purposes
  • Perform high quality audit procedures for common audit areas in nonpublic entities
  • Discuss the financial statement drafting and issuance process, including significant elements of the auditor’s report
  • Be familiar with the results of the numerous case studies, exercises, and illustrations that reinforce key learning points throughout the course
