Web Based Training Development and Certification through a Credentialing Organization

May 17, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm


This presentation addresses a government agency’s need to solve the problem of travel fund limitations, yet the need for current audit and accounting professional learning to meet ongoing continuing professional education requirements. The solution was to create and deliver web based learning. In addition, the agency determined that the training need to meet certification requirements for accountants and auditors including their CPA professionals.

The case study presents, from beginning to end, the challenges and successes of implementing a web based learning platform and obtaining accreditation for the training from an external credentialing organization. A cased study is the focus of the presentation and demonstrates how to (1) implement live, interactive web-based auditor and accounting training for geographically dispersed professional audit and accounting personnel, and (2) obtain credentialed certification from the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy.

The presentation is provided by Bernice M. Lemaire-Harvey CPA, CIA, CFE, CISA, CGMA and RIMS CRMP and former adjunct faculty member of the US Government Accountability Office in Wash., D.C.

Bernice Lemaire-Harvey is the Vice President of Audit, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. She retired as the Chief Auditor, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, a government agency that protects Americans pensions and funds over $5 billion in pension payments to retirees each year. Her career began as an auditor with the Government Accountability Office (GAO); she held progressively responsible positions such as Lead Auditor with the Office of Inspector General at the Securities and Exchange Commission, Principal Consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers, SOX Implementation Manager for IBM Headquarters’ global treasury operations, and Director for ERM at Computer Associates, she returned to GAO as an Adjunct Faculty member and Senior Analyst.
