Certificate in Audit Engagement Fundamentals


This four-day certificate program introduces the various assurance engagements accountants may be required to perform. It explores the risk-based audit approach, and explains how to recognize common risks and objectives for each audit area.

This course will increase your understanding of the link between planned audit procedures and the overall and financial statement assertion level risks, and will provide an opportunity to execute audit procedures. You will learn how to effectively and efficiently create working paper documentation to demonstrate the nature, timing and extent of procedures performed and review active listening techniques that will enhance your ability to gather relevant and reliable audit evidence through client interviews.

Using a case study approach, you will work in small group ‘audit teams’ to plan, execute and report on an audit engagement. As a team, you will learn to identify the risks and objectives of each audit area, and work together to ensure planned audit procedures are appropriately targeted to risks.
