The course will also prepare the participants for the CFE examination. It will provide the participants with the appropriate skills to conduct investigations with regards to fraud but also help them understand the main principles required for fraud prevention.
Certified fraud examiners uncover, prevent, and deter fraud. On the job, they study financial records for discrepancies and collaborate with law enforcement to bring criminals to justice. In this latter role, they testify during trials and submit evidence. Independent research shows that when a company or organization hires certified fraud examiners, that company uncovers fraud much faster and recovers more money than companies that do not employ them.
The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) is the world’s largest anti-fraud organization and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education. Together with more than 85,000 members, the ACFE is reducing business fraud world-wide and inspiring public confidence in the integrity and objectivity within the profession.
The CFE Exam consists of four sections: Financial Transactions and Fraud Schemes, Law, Investigation and Fraud Prevention and Deterrence. Candidates have 2 hours to complete each section of the CFE Exam. Although the total exam time is approximately 8 hours, applicants have 30 days from when they receive their CFE Exam Keys to finish the exam. Applicants may take each section of the exam at their own convenience if all sections are completed by the end of the 30 days. Each CFE Exam Key expires 24 hours after it has been entered.
