Focus on the theory behind audits, reviews, compilations, and financial statement preparation engagements. Understanding the "why" behind the procedures, new staff will review all types of engagements they will perform in their careers. Participants apply these concepts to realistic case scenarios, with a focus on understanding the process rather than the format. In other words, they will know why they are completing a checklist from a third party vendor, not just how to complete a checklist.
