In this course, we will review the key components of such a system, which can be found in the AICPA’s quality control standards. Specifically, this course will discuss adherence to relevant ethical standards, client and engagement acceptance and continuance procedures, human resources policies and procedures, engagement performance and monitoring activities, and best practices in designing and implementing effective quality control standards that address the responsibilities of firm leadership.The course will place special focus on addressing the challenges that smaller firms may have when attempting to implement these standards.
