Summary
Level 2 prepares less-experienced staff for assuming a greater level of responsibility on engagements. Once staff have “gotten their feet wet” by participating on a few engagements, this course will help auditors thoughtfully reflect on their experiences, and help to take basic knowledge to the next level. This course will include many real-life case studies for common audit areas assigned to staff in the first year.
