Course description

Audit Report Writing

Audit Reports can significantly lose their effect if not written professionally. Writing an audit report is a fine art and, once perfected, can take on more importance than the audit itself. In this eight-hour course, attendees will learn, in-depth, about each component of an audit report and how to set the correct tense and clarity to gain the most effectiveness.

Objectives:

  • Overview of best practices in effective writing techniques, including effective word usage and what emotional words not to use
  • Best practices in formatting of audit reports, including depth and length
  • Learn how to write an executive summary that has impact and is read by executives

Who should attend?

Financial, Operational, and Information Technology Auditors who would like to maximize the effectiveness of their audit reports (NASBA Field of Study: Auditing).
