The AICPA CFF Exam Review Course is the only review program backed by the resources and collective expertise of forensic accounting professionals associated with the nation’s premier membership organization for CPAs, the AICPA. The goal of this course it to prepare candidates to take and pass the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) exam. Join us for two days of engaging and informative review of all topics outlined in the CFF Exam’s Content Specification Outline (CSO). The CSO serves as the AICPA’s CFF body of knowledge.
Attendees receive a printout of all slides from the presentation and a comprehensive workbook that includes over 275 practice questions to assist in exam preparation.
NOTE: A candidate should not solely rely upon this course to prepare for the CFF Examination. The course is not meant to teach topics to the candidate for the first time. A significant amount of independent reading and study will be necessary to prepare for the exam, regardless of whether the candidate attends the review course or not. See the referenced readings in the CFF Exam's Content Specification Outline (CSO) for details. Additionally, review the Roadmap to the CFF Credential for a suggested course of action.
Key Topics Covered in the CFF Exam Review Course
The review course covers topics listed in the CFF Exam's Content Specification Outline (CSO), consisting of the following:
- Professional Responsibilities and Practice Management: As in all engagements, the CPA needs to be cognizant of the professional standards applicable to forensic matters. Nonâ€?Authoritative guidance is also available to assist the forensic accountant in various aspects of forensic accounting.
- Fundamental Forensic Knowledge: The accountant’s understanding of the applicable civil or criminal justice system (or alternative dispute resolution process) is essential to the planning, performance and reporting of a forensic engagement. While not every forensic engagement will result in litigation, consideration must be given to the possibility that each forensic engagement has to be approached from the very beginning as if it will be presented in court.
- Specialized Forensic Knowledge: Since each forensic accounting engagement is unique with its own facts and objectives, the forensic accountant needs to use appropriate specialized forensic knowledge, tools and procedures during the engagement. A basic knowledge of each of the following areas is helpful and no one practitioner would be expected to know them all but rather would seek expert assistance where necessary. The specialized areas include: bankruptcy, insolvency and reorganization; computer forensic analysis; economic damages calculations; family law; financial statement misrepresentation; fraud prevention, detection and response; and valuation.
