What People Say About This Seminar
“What did you learn? I think just trying not to be a machine auditor and really think through the steps and what we are trying to achieve.” – Virtual Audit Bootcamp participant
“This government auditing course was an excellent overview of the Yellowbook standards with practical application examples and exercises that encouraged understandability and reinforcement of concepts…This course was incredibly useful for new auditors and experienced auditors alike, who may need a refresher, or, who like me, have transitioned to government auditing after years in public accounting exclusively performing financial statement audits. Leita is a true expert in this subject matter and I really appreciated her teaching style…Thank you so much for a great and valuable experience!” – CPA in Public Practice
