Entry Level Staff – A&A Staff Level 1

Bridge the gap between academia and practice. Public accounting requires a high level of technical competency which begins the first day of hire and continues throughout a professional’s career. The rapid pace of the changing world of accounting requires new technical knowledge with each addition to the professional standards. The academic environment prepares graduates with a level of conceptual knowledge. Upon entering public accounting practice, firms must transition that knowledge of concepts into practical application for staff to develop quickly with the level of technical competency required by the professional standards.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • To provide guidance and hands-on experience with case studies to staff in their technical development and enhance performance required by the standards.

MAJOR TOPICS
  • Professional standards
  • Understanding the similarities and differences between preparation, compilation, review and audit services
  • Financial reporting frameworks

  • Focus on preparing documentation properly

DESIGNED FOR
Entry level staff accountants. Public accounting firms that want to develop newly-hired staff quickly with opportunities for advancement find that a consistent, continual formal training combined with practical application on the job will provide the best opportunity for quality performance. This is the first of three levels of staff development to begin the process.
