Internal Controls, Auditing and Fraud
Objective: Course will cover the five elements of internal control – control environment; risk assessment; control activities; information and communication; and monitoring. We’ll also learn what to do if you suspect fraud in the workplace.
This course qualifies for credit under VGFOA’s Certificate Program (http://www.vgfoa.org/page/certificate-program/) and fulfills the Internal Controls, Auditing and Fraud required class. It provides an online alternative to the live seminar class periodically offered. This is a self-paced course that has five main sections as follows:
2. Evaluating internal controls part 1
3. Evaluating internal controls part 2
4. Evaluating internal controls part 3
5. Detecting fraud, signs of embezzlement, and GFOA best practices
Each section has a recorded PowerPoint slide presentation. Prior to starting the exam, you can come and go from the presentation at any time. After working through the slides for a section you should take that section’s quiz. The slides can be printed in advance for reference and making notes while taking the class. You can take the quizzes as many times as you like. However, you must make 100% on one of the attempts for each section to get credit for the class.
After you have completed all five sections, you need to take the course exam. There is a two hour time limit and you only have one attempt. Once you start the exam, the two hour period begins and does not stop if you leave the exam.
This online class offers 7 hours of CPEs.
