Government Audit Training: The Bootcamp – 6 Video Series includes 6 online videos and self-study manual including presentation slides for 13.5 hours of CPE credit.
This 6 video series will give you the confidence you need to take on any audit assignment.
As we cover the key steps of performing an audit – including risk assessment, objective setting, evidence gathering, audit documentation, and audit reporting – your knowledge of how your work fits into the whole audit will be fortified. You will ‘get’ why your audit supervisor keeps asking you to do certain things.
After this government audit training, you might even be able to teach that smart-pants on your audit team a thing or two when we are done.
But this class isn’t only for new auditors – it is helpful for new auditors and experienced auditors alike. Yes, new auditors experience unfamiliar skills for the first time, but experienced auditors will also benefit as they recognize and resolve unproductive habits.
