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.


  • How to develop a finding or audit issue
  • How to gather evidence for audit conclusions and opinions
  • How to document what you’ve done in the working papers
  • What the steps of the audit are and how your work fits in
