AICPA's Audit Staff Essentials, Level III – Audit Senior/In-Charge

This comprehensive, integrated curriculum provides audit training for three different experience levels – New Staff (Level I), Experienced Staff (Level II); and Audit Senior/In-Charge (Level III).

This course is part of Audit Staff Training, Level III – Audit Senior/In-Charge and provides a level of training of the more difficult areas for experienced auditors.  This level will give staff the confidence necessary to begin assuming client and engagement management responsibilities.

A substantial number of financial statement reporting problems, audit failures, and litigation against accounting firms relates to revenue recognition issues. In this course, you will review the accounting requirements surrounding revenue recognition and learn where to go for additional accounting guidance. You will then go through the audit procedures and learn how to recognize fraud associated with improper revenue recognition and detect revenue misstatements.
