WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THIS COURSE
"Absolutely - I have been doing it wrong for a long time and I guess when management rejected and refused one of my latest report - that kind of hit home..."
"Very well-written course with plenty of references to professional standards, making them understandable and relevant to actual practice."
"I thought you did a really good job of differentiating between a good idea, and almost-mandatory-good-idea, and a standard."
"This course is extremely relevant for beginning government auditors. It is well-supported with positive examples of what every beginning auditor experiences. The examples help reassure auditors who today face the same issues Leita explained about her life as an auditor. It was interesting, humorous, but to the point…"
"I found the control summary and risk assessment very helpful and will refer to this area… on my next assignment." —County Internal Auditor, 12/10

Let Leita guide you through every step of conducting an audit including assessing risk, refining the audit objective, choosing methodologies, and documenting your work.
