Course Description

Report writing is hard! For many auditors it is their least favorite part of the job. That is because most of us go about it all wrong.  We have bad habits instilled in us from our writing in college that prevent us from communicating effectively.

Skilled auditors require a method that aligns what they experienced during the reviewing process with what they compose during the writing process. This report writing CPE course will provide foundation resources that participants can continually turn to during intense, complex audit engagements.

The art of audit report writing demands far more than simply listing the four elements of a finding–criteria, condition, cause, and effect. Adding the fifth element, the recommendation, may still be insufficient. This boilerplate approach to writing can threaten independent, critical thinking and undermine the entire audit process, ultimately tarnishing the credibility of the auditor.

This highly specialized CPE webinar will offer a deep and useful toolbox of techniques that auditors can use when noting audit observations, drafting objective work papers, and composing well-structured, detailed, and fluent audit reports.
