​Internal Auditors and public accountants are under fire.  Some doubt their ability or willingness to detect fraud.  There seems to be an increasing expectation that internal auditors detect fraud in routine audits.  Yet most auditors get very little fraud training.  Standards for auditors, including those issued by the IIA, AICPA, and government, call for auditors to be knowledgeable about fraud exposures and symptoms of fraud in areas audited.  This one-day course provides specific approaches and steps to help auditors in recognizing and detecting fraud.  It is a "how to" course which presents suggestions for detections and for creating an environment that promotes discovery of fraud.
