Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

The risk assessment standards, designed to eliminate the connect-the-dots methodology of checklist auditing and add critical thinking back into the audit process, remain a problem area for many firms. This course has been updated for the recently enacted AICPA Clarity Standards that expanded the risk assessment methodology to many new additional audit areas. We'll break down this complex and misunderstood subject into an easy-to-understand, concise systematic approach.

Who should attend: Auditors and industry CPAs who require an in-depth understanding of the assertion-based approach to audit risk assessment.

Risk assessment is the core principle of the profession's audit standards and critical to conducting an effective and efficient audit. With peer review results in and more than few years' worth of experience under the profession's collective belt, it's time to fine-tune implementation of the risk assessment standards. These standards, designed to eliminate the connect-the-dots methodology of checklist auditing and add critical thinking back into the audit process, remain a problem area for many firms. The result? Engagement and peer review deficiencies. This course has been updated for the recently enacted AICPA Clarity Standards that expanded the risk assessment methodology to many new additional audit areas. We'll break down this complex and misunderstood subject into an easy-to-understand, concise systematic approach.
