The study uses a purposive sampling method to select the best ten accounting and auditing firms, while a structured questionnaire was used to collect data from the respondents. Data analysis was performed with the aid of percentage, mean and OLS. The result established that professional training has a positive and significant relationship with employee performance. The study also affirmed that staff of the selected accounting and auditing firms were trained via on-the-job training, team discussion or seminar, classroom training, conference method, programmed instructions, off-the-job training, and vestibule or training center training.

The study, therefore, concluded that effective professional training is a veritable tool for employee performance in accounting and auditing firms.
