Overview

Level 3 focuses on transitioning staff auditors to performing more complex audit procedures, and assuming more responsibilities related to handling financial reporting issues. This course builds on the technical experiences of auditors to introduce them to the tips and techniques necessary to assume responsibility on larger engagements with increased audit risk, including considering audit report modifications. NOTE: Participants must sign up for both consecutive days. Please check the registration calendar to find both complementary dates, which will run in consecutive order.

Major Topics:

Each module includes a lecture followed by in-class group case studies and activities. In this two-day course, the following two-hour modules will be presented:
  • Day 1:
    • Code of conduct: Independence considerations when performing attest services
    • Fraud risk considerations: Assessing fraud risk in a financial statement audit
    • Risk-based audit concepts: Identifying and evaluating audit risk
    • Internal controls: Internal control testing for operating effectiveness
         
  • Day 2:
    • Cash and investments: Auditing common investments
    • A/R and revenue: Auditing revenue recognition
    • Analytical procedures: Substantive analytic procedures
    • Financial statement reporting: Financial reporting complex issues
         

Learning Objectives

  • Explain how to properly safeguard independence when performing both attest and nonattest services
  • Describe how to alter the nature, timing, and extent of audit procedures to be commensurate with assessed risk of material misstatement, including fraud risk
