It's been said that you cannot fit a square peg into a round hole. The same principle holds true for audits of not-for-profit entities. You cannot apply a standard commercial audit approach to the audit of a not-for-profit entity and expect a good fit. Skilled auditors will instead adjust and hone the audit approach to fit the not-for-profit entity. This course is designed to help you obtain the superior skills needed to excel in auditing not-for-profit entities. The course materials utilize a highly illustrative and innovative format. Over 20 focused exercises are included to provide an enhanced working knowledge of auditing not-for-profit entities.
