This webinar training pays for itself in terms of your firm's potential savings and detection of fraud.

The training is designed to both prevent and detect fraud. We first teach you how to establish an administrative environment where fraud is less likely to occur.

We'll then examine Excel tools that are used by CPAs and Internal Auditors to detect fraud.

Properly informed, administrative and financial professionals can serve as fraud auditors and add huge value to their department. Using Excel's fraud related applications, you can data mine huge volumes of accounting transactions in an organized manner and recover substantial amounts of money for your firm.

Excel provides several easy-to-use tools that can greatly enhance and expedite the fraud audit process. This course will demonstrate how to use a variety of Excel tools along with step-by-step instructions that you can put to immediate use to help your firm spot fraud red flags.

This interesting, informative, practical, on-the-job training combines the best aspects of two different but related topics: (1) Fraud Auditing and (2) Excel Tools for Data Mining, Statistics, Analytics, and many more useful Excel tools.
