Thursday, May 14, 2020
9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time
This course addresses fraud related issues from the perspective of small- and medium-sized accounting firms. The goal of this course is to enhance the accountant’s ability to recognize, detect, and prevent fraud; increase fraud awareness; help accountants and auditors understand their role in addressing fraud; and identify the most common types of fraud currently perpetrated in today’s fast-paced business environment.
