Certified Fraud Specialist (CFS)

FunCPE courses can be take by Certified Fraud Specialists (CFS) to obtain CPE credit.

CFS professionals are accredited by The Association of Certified Fraud Specialists (ACFS) which is a non-profit association headquartered in Sacramento, CA. The Association provides educational and networking opportunities to law enforcement, attorneys, and public and private sector investigators, auditors, and other risk management professionals.

How to become a Certified Fraud Specialist

The ACFS provides two ways of becoming a CFS:

  1. A grandfathering provision which allows anti-fraud professionals with more than 8 years of experience to become certified without taking the written exam.
  2. A written exam designed to certify less experienced fraud professionals.

You must be a member of ACFS in order to become certified.

Continuing Education

The Association of Certified Fraud Specialists does require continuing education in order to maintain your professional CFS certification and self-study CPE courses are accepted.

The ACFS Rules and Regulations require each fellow and regular member to complete at least twenty-four (24) hours of continuing professional education each year and that sixteen (16) hours of those CPE hours must be fraud related.

ACFS does require annual renewal of the Certified Fraud Specialist designation.

Accordingly, FunCPE courses in the following subject areas are recommended for CPE for CFSs:
