General Description:

IDDO Certification, is 20 hours – 16 classroom hours and 4 hours of homework with case studies in teams.

►Focusing energy toward productivity and good choice making

Course Materials:

Course material as well as the central presentation and selected papers and stories that will be provided in advance electronically. Case Studies will be handed out in class for the teams to dissect, discuss and present their findings.

Key Benefits of Attending:

Attendees will be empowered to make better decisions every day. From daily opportunities to complicated fraud
schemes, attendees will know how to more effectively spot signs, ask questions and ultimately save you money.

Further, a person skilled in IDDO’s Due Diligence, can improve an organizations ability to withstand regulator
inquires or threats of litigation. The point of the three days of training is to change the way the professional think so
they think like Due Diligence Professionals. How many audits miss fraud and massive fraud? How many times did
the SEC investigate Madoff and not find anything wrong – (it was 3 times).

It is not that the professionals are stupid or incompetent, they are not, they are very smart but they did not think as a Due Diligence Professional or Expert.

The question is whether you can afford not to have Due Diligence certified professionals watching over your business?

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
