Audit Skills Training Level 2: Staff Accountant
Robert Wayne Wells,
Blankenship CPA Group, PLLC
Level 2 prepares less-experienced staff for assuming a greater level of responsibility on engagements. Once staff have "gotten their feet wet" by participating on a few engagements, this course will help auditors thoughtfully reflect on their experiences and take basic knowledge to the next level. This course will include many real-life case studies for common audit areas assigned to staff in the first year.
After completing this course, attendees will be able to perform effective and efficient compilations and reviews, as well as perform high-quality audit procedures for common audit areas in nonpublic entities. Attendees will be able to describe the fundamentals of strong analytical procedures on an audit and sampling for attribute testing and substantive purposes. They will understand the financial statement drafting and issuance process, including significant elements of the auditor's report. Lastly, attendees will be familiar with the results of the numerous case studies, exercises and illustrations that reinforce key learning points throughout the course.
