Advanced Performance Audit Training

Participant Profile

This course is intended for the auditor with approximately three to five years of performance audit experience. It is targeted to auditors who have or will have the responsibility for supervising or managing the work of more junior auditors. This course is suitable for senior auditors.


This three-day intermediary level course begins with a one-hour videoconference six weeks before the course.  Participants are placed into teams, are assigned an audit topic by their office, and are expected to gather knowledge of business and propose an audit scope related to that topic.


The course includes individual and group exercises, lectures, and presentations all tailored to meet your office's needs. Topics include planning and scoping, team building, leadership, supervision, entity relations, and quality control.
