Auditing professionals know that successful audits are both a science and an art. First-party, second-party and third-party audits all rely on a quantitative examination of policies, procedures, compliance issues and accounting. Auditors must also be able to examine unique and creative procedures and operations businesses have chosen.
No matter how much creative license is allowed businesses, however, auditors need to adhere to the standards of the auditing world and professional standards when conducting an audit. They may need to adhere to the Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS), disseminated by the Auditing Standards Board of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) or other standards developed within their industry.
Standards in the auditing world and in the business world change regularly, especially as new regulations and compliance rules are released. Keeping up-to-date with auditing standards is an important part of any auditing professional’s job. Lorman Education Services makes it easy to keep up-to-date with current standards by offering online auditing standards training.
For one budget-friendly yearly price, you can access all of the training materials we have to offer, so you can stay up-to-date and current in your field.
What Is Auditing Standards Training?
Auditing standards training helps organizations and auditing professionals thoroughly understand current standards for audits. Whether conducting first-party, second-party or third-party audits, auditors must adhere to specific standards within their industry and for the type of audits being conducted.
Auditing standards training helps auditors understand how current regulations and issues affect standards, and training also offers best practices as well as case studies so auditors can see what standards look like in action. Training helps meet professional association training requirements, and also helps hone the skills auditors need for their profession.
