CAREER STAGE: Early, Mid, Late Career

Experience various assurance engagements that accountants may be required to perform.

This CPA Ontario certificate program explores the risk-based audit approach and explains how to recognize common risks and objectives for each audit area.

This program will increase your understanding of the link between planned audit procedures and the overall and financial statement assertion level risks, and give you an opportunity to execute audit procedures. Learn how to effectively and efficiently create working paper documentation to demonstrate the nature, timing and extent of procedures performed. Review active listening techniques 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.

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Risk-based techniques for auditing financial statements
  • Analytical procedures and sampling
  • Develop working paper documentation
  • Active listening and inquiry
  • Time and relationship management
  • How to plan, execute and report on an audit engagement
  • Ensure planned audit procedures are appropriately targeted to risks

WHO WILL BENEFIT:

Individuals who have not yet participated in an assurance engagement, have limited experience with the execution of assurance engagements, or anyone interested in refreshing their knowledge of the fundamentals of performing assurance engagements.
