Individual course modules are listed below. Complete courses are available to purchase here at a discounted price.

Analytics – Section A: The Audit Risk Model (a.k.a., The Rosetta Stone) and WIIFM (What’s in it for me)

Learn how the audit risk model (50 years young!) quantifies the audit process. Remember it?? It encourages efficiency and effectiveness… plan more, and audit way, way less! You will find the different costs of evidence and their impact on your audit efficiency staggering! Find out why you need to maximise the use of analytics in your audit programs.

Course Module available for 7 days after purchasing.
This is 1 of 6 modules of a complete course. Discounts apply if all 6 modules of the course are purchased as a package.

Analytics – Section B: The Six Levels of Analytical Procedures

Can you name the globally agreed-upon six (6) procedures? There are analytics and there are ANALYTICS. Are you maximising your use of the most efficient form of audit test? This is not about running scripts over data, this is about true analysis that turns data into information.

Course Module available for 7 days after purchasing.
This is 2 of 6 modules of a complete course. Discounts apply if all 6 modules of the course are purchased as a package.

Analytics – Section C: Simple Linear Regression

Remember regression analysis from college/university? You were taught the math rather than how to apply it to the real world. Learn how this mathematical tool will help you audit smarter by quickly and efficiently identifying outliers, targeting your testing and thus saving you valuable audit time and money.Estimated time to complete: 100-115 mins (interactive with quizzes).

Course Module available for 7 days after purchasing.
This is 3 of 6 modules of a complete course. Discounts apply if all 6 modules of the course are purchased as a package.

Analytics – Section D: Setting Bounds (Constructing Prediction Intervals) for Regression

Now that you know how to run regression in an audit context, learn how to build statistical bounds and add benchmarks to your analysis. Why do this? Eliminate the need for judgment calls or grey areas by statistically defining outliers and being able to put some math into your conclusions. When was the last time you could start your report with the words “I am 95% confident that… “.Estimated time to complete: 75-90 mins (interactive with quizzes).Pre-requisite knowledge: It is assumed you are familiar with the concepts of Section C before completing this section.

Analytics – Section E: Noise Due to Data Sub-Populations and Lagging

Let’s address some common complexities that occur when you run regression in the real world. Reality is that you don’t always get a nice, neat looking analysis. Learn how to identify and address what the statisticians call ‘noise’ in the data, i.e. sub-populations and the effect of time lag/time lapse on your data.Estimated time to complete: 60-75 mins (interactive with quizzes).Pre-requisite knowledge: It is assumed you are familiar with the concepts of Section C & D before completing this section.

Course Module available for 7 days after purchasing.
This is 5 of 6 modules of a complete course. Discounts apply if all 6 modules of the course are purchased as a package.

Analytics – Section F: Curve Linear Regression

Let’s address another complexity that can occur when you run regression in the real world – not all data is linear. Learn how to run regression where relationships in your data are non-linear.Estimated time to complete: 30-45 mins (interactive with quizzes).Pre-requisite knowledge: It is assumed you are familiar with the concepts of Section C, D & E before completing this section.

Sampling for Controls – Section A: The Audit Risk Model (a.k.a., The Rosetta Stone) and WIIFM (What’s in it for me)

This model (50 years young!) quantifies the audit process. Remember it?? It encourages efficiency and effectiveness… plan more, and audit way, way less! You will find the different costs of evidence and their impact on your audit efficiency staggering!

Course Module available for 7 days after purchasing.
This is 1 of 8 modules of a complete course. Discounts apply if all 8 modules of the course are purchased as a package.

Sampling for Controls – Section B: Statistics (not “Sadistics”) … A Primer, and Tying Sample Size to Audit Risk

Yes, we need to revisit some time-honoured concepts (variance, alpha error, beta error, precision). Relax! We’ll make it easy by explaining it in plain English! The pay-off for getting this planning right is smaller sample sizes!

Course Module available for 7 days after purchasing.
This is 2 of 8 modules of a complete course. Discounts apply if all 8 modules of the course are purchased as a package.

Sampling for Controls – Section C: Multiple Statistical Sampling Methods

Learn that four methods for selecting samples for controls testing are available! Get acquainted with our decision tree for selecting the best sampling method for your audit objective. Find out how to download the freeware we will be using (EZ-Quant).
