Certified Forensic Financial Analyst (CFFA)

Maintain your CFFA credential

The Certified Forensic Financial Analyst (CFFA) credential was originially offered by the Financial Forensics Institute, a subsidiary of National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA).  It appears that as of 2015, the CFFA has been merged into the Master Analyst in Financial Forensics (MAFF), also offered through the Financial Forensics Institute, although this is not clear from their website.

There is no mention of the CFFA on the nacva.com website.  We do recommend that you contact the company directly to determine actual CPE requirements.

We did not find a website for the Financial Forensics Institute, although we did find one for Financial Forensics Academy.

Specific FunCPE courses are expected to be acceptable for CFFA CPE credit. CFFAs in every state could receive credit for our courses.

NACVA requires that hat MAFFs follow a 60 point/60 hour CPE system.  You can receive points for contributions to industry knowledge, experience and attending recommended conferences.  You can reduce your CPE requirements to 36 hours for the 3 year cycle.


The 36 hours of CPE (Continuing Professional Education) should be in areas of

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

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.

 
The MAFF credential can be earned in five areas of specialty:
  • financial litigation,
  • forensic accounting,
  • business fraud—deterrence,
  • detection and investigation, business and intellectual property damages, and
  • matrimonial litigation support.
 
 

Fifty percent or more of the 36 hour requirement must be earned in your designated specialty area.

Rules and requirements for CFFA 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 TaxCourseCentral.com 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.
