Yellow Book CPE Focused Training Courses
Our seminars contain practical advice gleaned from highly experienced Yellow Book assurance and audit professionals.
The GAO's Yellow Book, Government Auditing Standards, lays down certain CPE requirements. Auditors performing work under GAGAS, including planning,
directing, performing field work, or reporting on an audit or attestation engagement under GAGAS, need to maintain their professional
competence through continuing professional education (CPE). Therefore, each auditor performing work under GAGAS should complete, every two years,
at least 80 hours of CPE that directly enhance the auditor's professional proficiency to perform audits and/or attestation engagements.
At least 24 of the 80 hours of CPE should be in subjects directly related to government auditing, the government environment, or the specific
or unique environment in which the audited entity operates. At least 20 hours of the 80 should be completed in any one year of the two-year period.
For details on the Yellow Book CPE requirements go to Government Auditing Standards - Guidance on GAGAS Requirements for CPE.

Auditor Licenses and Certifications
Employment opportunities are best for auditors with certification. Most audit employers prefer or require auditors to have certified public account (CPA) or certified internal auditor (CIA) credentials or certified fraud examiner (CFE) and certified information systems auditor (CISA).
CPA audit certification is granted by each state's Board of Accountancy. In nearly all states, accountants or auditors must have 150 academic hours of training, which requires training beyond the typical 120 hours of an undergraduate degree. Therefore, CPA candidates usually have completed graduate-level accounting and auditing courses.
To become certified, auditors must pass the Uniform CPA Examination, which is administered by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The exam involves four sections which can be passed at once or on separate testing occasions, though exam-takers are required to pass all four sections within 18 months of passing the initial section. To retain CPA credentials, auditors and accountants must obtain continuing education credits.
The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) offers CIA certification for auditors who have completed a formal audit training program and acquired at least two years of audit experience. Auditors must pass a comprehensive exam that addresses tax and auditing regulations, proper auditing processes and additional areas of financial review. To remain certified, auditors must participate in continuing education courses offered by the IIA.
CFE certification is granted by the Assocation of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs) possess unique audit industry expertise in preventing and detecting fraud, and are highly valued by organizations spanning all industries, sectors and sizes. The CFE Exam will test knowledge of the four major areas that comprise the fraud examination body of knowledge.
The CISA certification has been granted in the past by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association. The ISACA now goes by its acronym only, to reflect the broad range of IT governance professionals it serves. ISACA®'s Certified Information Systems Auditor® (CISA®) certification instantly validates skills and expertise in auditing, control and information security. It proves the CISA can assess vulnerabilities, report on compliance and validate and enhance controls in an enterprise.
