Overview

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.
