Course description

Audit Report Writing

Audit Reports can significantly lose their effect if not written professionally. Writing an audit report is a fine art and, once perfected, can take on more importance than the audit itself. In this eight-hour course, attendees will learn, in-depth, about each component of an audit report and how to set the correct tense and clarity to gain the most effectiveness.


  • Overview of best practices in effective writing techniques, including effective word usage and what emotional words not to use
  • Best practices in formatting of audit reports, including depth and length
  • Learn how to write an executive summary that has impact and is read by executives
