CPD Course Overview

8 hours Des O’Neill – OmniPro

One year on from the introduction of the new (IAASA) International Standards on Auditing (Ireland), auditors are getting to grips with the changes and nuances introduced. The new Auditing and Ethical Standards are just another in a long line of legislative and regulatory changes that have faced the profession over the past number of years. Notwithstanding the latest wave of change to sweep the profession it is essential that auditors now focus on optimising their processes and procedures to ensure profitable implementation of the new standards.

Having helped hundreds of firms implement the new standards over the past 12 months the OmniPro technical team is uniquely positioned to identify the enduring problem areas and provide solutions to the most common challenges faced by practitioners.

This workshop will focus on the practical implementation of the new auditing and associated ethical standards – from communications, planning and procedures right through to execution, reporting and opinion forming.

The Complete Audit Workshop Live Stream Option

You can now register your virtual seat on The Complete Audit Workshop on 16 December if you cannot attend the live event.

  • Worried about the weather but still have a few hours CPD to complete?
  • Struggling to get out of the office but coming up short on your 2018 CPD requirements?
  • Completed your CPD for 2018 but want to stay ahead of the game in 2019?

If any of the above are true for you then our end of year Virtual Events are just the solution. 

The Benefits of an OmniPro Virtual Event

Our virtual events combine all the best aspects of live events with the convenience of an online course.

What you get?

  • Multicamera video stream of the speaker
  • Live screen share of Presentation
  • Live annotation of supporting documents
  • Digital download of presentation and supporting documentation
  • Live Q&A
  • ***Ask the Technical Team***

All Your Questions Answered

Here is the best part – as normal you can ask Des questions during the event through the chat facility which he will respond to live. In addition, our unique hybrid virtual event format means that our entire technical team are on hand reviewing all the questions coming in and responding to the more detailed questions being posed.

Sometimes in live events, to keep the agenda on track certain questions need to be parked. Not with an OmniPro virtual event, we guarantee that all questions will be responded to. This is your opportunity to get all those awkward questions off your desk and gain access to the entire OmniPro technical team for a full day – all for the cost of your seat.

This could really be the future of CPD.
