Certified Financial Forensics (CFF)

FunCPE fraud courses are acceptable for Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) CPE credit. CFFs in every state can receive credit for our courses.

Certified in Financial Forensics Overview

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) established the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) credential in 2008 for CPAs who specialize in forensic accounting.

The CFF credential is granted exclusively to CPAs who demonstrate considerable expertise in forensic accounting through their knowledge, skills, and experience.

The CFF encompasses fundamental and specialized forensic accounting skills that CPA practitioners apply in a variety of service areas, including: bankruptcy and insolvency; computer forensic analysis; family law; valuations; fraud prevention, detection, and response; financial statement misrepresentation; and economic damages calculations.

For details, view the CFF background, qualification requirements and application.

The continuing education subject areas include all areas of forensic accounting such as:
