About Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) Practice Exam
A Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) is a professional certification available to fraud examiners. CFEs are subject to periodic continuing professional education requirements (CPE) in the same manner as CPAs. The CFE designation is issued by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), the world's largest anti-fraud organization, based in Austin, Texas.
The Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) is a credential awarded by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). The ACFE association is a provider of anti-fraud training and education. Together with more than 80,000 members, the ACFE seeks to reduce business fraud world-wide and to inspire public confidence in the integrity and objectivity within the profession. CFE training involves imparting knowledge of complex financial transactions and understanding of forensic methods, law, and of how to resolve allegations of fraud. Fraud examiners are trained to understand how and why fraud occurs.
