Welcome to CCC-ACFE's Chapter Website
What Being a Certified Fraud Examiner Means
The designation of Certified Fraud Examiner does not signify that the holder of the title is an “expert” in the field of fraud examination. It does mean that the fraud examiner has met the requirements of the ACFE and is receiving the continuing education on deterrence, detection, investigation, and prosecution in fraud and abuse situations. Fraud examiners have various areas of expertise and come from various backgrounds such as auditing, investigation, and law enforcement. Many have experience with regulatory agencies of Federal and State governments. The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners requires that the CFE receives at least 20 continuing education credits per year with at least ten of the credits being specific to fraud and the other ten being fraud-related. The previous education and experience of a CFE usually is an indicator of the qualifications for a specific job in fraud examination.
