Course Description

There is more than meets the eye when it comes to being an auditor-in-charge.


Leading an audit team not only requires a great deal of knowledge, it also requires dedication, efficiency, and effective leadership skills. Audit leaders today need to know how to run a team properly so that every project runs smoothly. In other words, they need the skills to lead with confidence because the Auditor-In-Charge (AIC) has a great deal of responsibilities. They must provide directions to the audit team; assess the quality of the work of the audit team; provide ongoing communication to audit management and audit clients; develop the draft report; prepare for the exit conference; assess the performance of the audit team; and many other minor activities. 


The success of an audit engagement will often depend on how well the AIC carries out those functions.  There are certain skills and attributes an AIC must master to successfully lead an audit engagement. This CPE webinar will help you understand the skills needed and the responsibilities of the AIC.
