Why This Course?

It is not uncommon to hear auditors extending their audit fieldwork timeline due to inability to complete testing of the audit samples selected. Question has also been raised on the ideal or appropriate number and even types of samples to be taken since the audit is supposed to provide reasonable and not absolute assurance.


The arduous task of sampling and testing could be even more challenging in a business process with high transaction volumes processed and retained in the IT system.


If you are facing the same dilemma, this course will  help you to overcome this issue & embrace the methodology and approach to make the smart and efficient decision on sampling. Also, be exposed to why many successful Corporate Assurance teams are adopting the mindset of using sampling to confirm findings rather than find findings!
