CFEs have a unique set of skills that are not found in any other career field or discipline; they combine knowledge of complex financial transactions with an understanding of methods, law, and how to resolve allegations of fraud. Fraud examiners are also trained to understand not only how fraud occurs, but why. For more details and background to the CFE credential please visit the global ACFE website.

New CFE examination platform
Please be advised that from 6 January 2020, the ACFE will be upgrading to a new exam platform, which involves video recording of exam taking. Please note that we at RSM will offer facilities to do your exam but we do, however, recommend that it may be more prudent to do your exams at a private location without disturbance or background interruption such as at your office, home or hotel. This is because we cannot guarantee 100% Wi-Fi reliability for constant video for a group to take their exams at the end of each day, reliant on number.
For more information on the new CFE Exam platform please refer to the ACFE website at: https://www.cfeexamcoach.com/cfe-exam-platform-is-changing
New Computer System Requirements*
*Note: The CFE Exam will no longer be compatible with iPads.
If your computer does not have a web camera, you can purchase an external one online or anywhere where web cameras are sold.
