    The Specialized Forensic Accounting Certificate program (43.0 CPE Credits) covers unique areas including bankruptcy, property damages, family law and more. Leverage this program to acquire new skills, begin the CFF Credential pathway or earn CPE credits.

    Because each forensic accounting engagement is unique with its facts and objectives, the forensic accountant needs to use appropriate specialized forensic knowledge, tools and procedures during the engagement. A basic knowledge of each area is helpful. However, no one practitioner would be expected to know them all, but rather would seek expert assistance where necessary. Through narration by industry subject matter experts and application exercises, this certificate program covers unique areas of a forensic engagement including bankruptcy, business/individual/intellectual property damages, mergers and acquisitions, family law, divorce and more.

    Composed of required education and the respective Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) credential’s Specialized Forensics Knowledge exam, this certificate program was developed to assist you in customizing your professional development goals in one of the following ways:

    Acquiring new skills and earning a certificate in a growing practice area

    Learn new skills, enhance your  existing competency or take a deep dive into this growing practice area. You'll  gain new comprehension that will allow you to demonstrate your proficiency and  stand out among your peers. Earn the certificate by completing the required  learning and passing the Specialized Forensics Knowledge exam. Once you  complete the Specialized Forensic Accounting Certificate, if you haven't already done so, consider earning the Core Forensic Accounting Certificate.

    Beginning the pathway to completing the CFF Credential

    Use the certificate program as a more flexible way to earn your CFF Credential. The Specialized Forensic Accounting Certificate program covers topics found in the Content Specification  Outline (CSO) for the Specialized Forensic Knowledge exam section of the CFF Credential  exam. Completion of the education and passing the exam as well as completing  the Core  Forensic Accounting Certificate program will fulfill the education and exam requirements needed to earn the CFF credential*.  The flexibility in earning both of these certificates saves you approximately  20 CPE hours versus having to earn 75 CPE credits if you opt to not utilize these programs.

    *Earning both the Core & Specialized Forensic Accounting Certificates does not indicate you are certified in financial forensics. You must still meet the 1,000-hour experience  and other credential requirements to earn your CFF credential.

    Earning CPE credits to maintain your existing CFF Credential

    Existing CFF Credential holders can use the education to earn CPE credits needed to maintain the credential. You can customize your learning experience by either purchasing the education only bundle or any of the individual course modules listed below.

    The online education will be available in your account for one year from the date you purchase it. The Specialized Forensic Knowledge exam is online and proctored remotely via webcam and audio (either laptop or USB external) anytime 7 days a week throughout the year. Within 10 business days from the purchase date, you will receive a Notice to Schedule (NTS) and have the flexibility to schedule the exam at your convenience. Your NTS will be valid for one year from the date you receive it.
