Description

The formula for a successful audit today consists of many elements. Some of those elements require more thoughtfulness and caution in their application than others. In this course, we will explore those more combustible elements that can cause the audit to blow up with the budget, peer reviewers, clients and others. The course materials utilize a highly illustrative and innovative format. Over 15 focused exercises are included to provide an enhanced working knowledge of today's GAAS.

Highlights

  • Stay current on key aspects of maintaining professional skepticism and avoid problems with clients, peer reviewers, and others
  • Proficiently perform audits through an increased knowledge of how the various sections of GAAS are applied and interrelate to each other
  • Skillfully apply the more troublesome requirements used by auditors on a daily basis
