This was great learning about the yellow book rules. I have went through an audit personally until this year working for a government entity. Usually the audit I been through were in private companies and they were mostly internal audits, so this was nice to listen how much work goes into the external audits.

I work for a municipal government and this course, although not specifically associated with my job, offered insight as to the audit function carried out by the outside auditors and offered some thinking points for my position and how I view internal processes.
