After several projects, the new auditor begins to piece together his or her role in the auditing process. Without an understanding of key audit skills, new auditors can easily spend valuable audit hours doing the wrong thing. New auditors will feel more comfortable doing their work once they understand the essentials of each phase of the audit – planning, risk assessment, audit program design, fieldwork, working paper development, and issue development. This course covers the latest standards and concepts regarding risk assessment and internal control assessments and covers the basics of the auditor’s responsibilities for fraud detection.
