Technical Courses (Levels I, II, III):
Levels I through III focus on the theory behind audits, reviews, compilations, and financial statement preparation engagements. At AHI we believe that by understanding the “why” behind the procedures, new staff will be prepared for all types of engagements that will arise in their career. Participants apply these concepts to realistic case scenarios, with a focus on understanding the process rather than the format. At AHI, our goal is to develop thinkers, not just doers. Our Levels I through III courses are designed especially for any staff who will be performing audits, reviews, compilations, or financial statement preparation engagements.
Leadership Courses (Levels IV and V):
Levels IV and V are soft skills training courses that benefit both the person attending and their organization. These two courses are applicable for various accounting departments (i.e. audit, tax, consulting, and accounting services) but because these are universal leadership concepts, they are equally applicable to other professional business leaders.
AHI soft skills training will help improve efficiency, make managers and senior managers more effective with others, and increase the organization’s bottom line. Also, as these courses often include other industries besides accounting, there is an opportunity to work and network with leadership professionals from other industries.
