This 4-unit course prepares participants to sit for the CGAP (Certified Government Audit Professional) Examination. The review course is based on IIA (Institute of Internal Auditors) source materials as well as the latest literature on the role and expectations of government auditors in the current era of enhanced accountability in the public sector. All basic requirements to prepare for and pass the CGAP exam are addressed in this review.
Each of the four domains in the CGAP exam—standards and controls, audit practices, audit methodologies and skills, and the government environment—are carefully reviewed. After discussion of each domain, participants are requested to independently complete a set of practice questions. The answers to the practice questions are discussed at beginning of the next unit.
Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:
- Be prepared to sit for the CGAP examination
- Understand and apply required standards for governmental auditing
- Use current audit methodologies and techniques in government audits
- Describe the government auditor’s evolving role in accountability.
By attending this eWorkshop, The IIA is waiving the application fee (up to a US$200 value each) for The Certified Government Auditing Professional (CGAP) certification.*
Each participant will also receive the electronic version of the CGAP Exam Study Guide, 4th Edition (Up to an $85 Value!)
