Course Description

Are you prepared for the increasing demand for forensic accountants and forensic accounting procedures to detect and prevent misappropriation of assets, management fraud, and fraudulent financial reporting?

Forensic accounting is not a complicated concept; it is essentially litigation support involving accounting. The application of forensic accounting techniques is also fairly straightforward. Forensic accountants apply their skills to legal cases to answer questions regarding damages, generally with an economic bearing, or where there is a concern expressed by a company potentially experiencing fraud or suffering from deficient internal controls

Forensic accounting skills are also useful in assisting the audit team with fraud-risk assessments, where it is vital to know how to ask probative questions in a non-threatening manner. As the focus on fraud discovery and deterrence rises, accountants must hone their skills to recognize fraudulent or deceptive practices and build their knowledge to redesign internal controls. 

This Online CPE Webinar covers the following Key Topics:

  • History of the forensic accounting profession in the United States. 
  • Various professional associations and certifications in the forensic accounting field.
  • Career opportunities in the forensic accounting field
  • Skills and knowledge necessary to be a successful forensic accountant.


This Online CPE Webinar is designed for CPAs, CMAs, and other individuals who would like to obtain a basic introduction to forensic accounting.
