Accredited Valuation Analyst (AVA)

Specific FunCPE fraud courses are acceptable for AVA CPE credit. AVAs in every state can receive credit for our courses.

The Financial Forensics Institute (NACVA) recertification program follows a 100-point system, whereby credentialed members must obtain 100 or more points to comply with recertification. The new point system allows points credit for life-long learning, contributions to industry knowledge and for experience, upon meeting certain criteria.

AVAs must obtain 36 hours of CPE (Continuing Professional Education) in areas of

  • valuation,
  • litigation,
  • financial forensics/fraud consulting, or
  • related applications.

Fifty percent or more of the 36 hour requirement must be earned in the subject areas of valuation and/or litigation.

If you elect to take more than 36 hours of continuing education, you can receive additional points. The point system is detailed in the NACVA Association Brochure.

Courses must be completed in each three-year period, based on your initial license date. All CPE cycles end on December 31st of the third year of your renewal period and December 31st is the renewal due date as well.

Rules and requirements for AVA credential holders (Per the NACVA website):

Programs that qualify as CPE

NACVA has not defined specific approved courses, but any course or conference sponsored or endorsed by NACVA, or any course or conference with valuation, litigation, financial forensics or fraud in its title would clearly apply.

There will be gray areas, i.e., courses having some application to these disciplines, and we ask designees to use their best judgment to determine compliance and the appropriate hours to report. NACVA reserves the right to request more specific proof or evidence of course attendance and content, upon which a full determination can be made as to actual compliance to the CPE requirement.

Accordingly, FunCPE Fraud courses qualify for CPE credit.

California Tax Education Council (CTEC)

FunCPE does not currently offer CTEC courses to California tax preparers.  We have partnered with our friends at to offer students access to CTEC approved courses.  

California law requires anyone who prepares (or assists with) tax returns for a fee, and is not an attorney, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or Enrolled Agent (EA), to register as a tax preparer with CTEC.
