Course Description

Forensic accounting encompasses fraud investigation and prevention, as well as a wide variety of functions in litigation. Forensic accountants provide services ranging from serving as an expert witness to litigation consultants and bankruptcy trustee.

This CPE course provides a high-level overview and introduction into the world of forensic accountants. Most accountants have an understanding of the concept of fraud and how it impacts companies but many individuals do not have a full comprehension of the variance in the work performed by a forensic accountant versus a typical management accountant. 

This Online CPE/CE webinar is meant for those individuals interested in understanding the variances in the job tasks and responsibilities of forensic accountants versus typical financial or management accountants.

In this Online Accounting CPE course, the speaker Lynn Fountain will uncover the following Key Points:

  • Overall understanding of the world of forensic accounting
  • Numerous processes and roles of the forensic accountant.
  • Rules of evidence and the accountant’s potential need to testify in a court of law.
  • Differentiating factors between the role of forensic accountant and accountant.

Forensic accountants or auditors take a unique focus on performing their work. Typically, when a person with forensic experience is called in to examine financial records, it is due to suspicion of fraud, evaluation of assets, or even to track down fundamentally incorrect accounting – intentional or not.

As fraud continues to raise its head in business processes, forensic accountants are discovering new and unique ways to identify, examine, and support their hypotheses and investigative techniques. The work performed by a forensic specialist can be interesting and full of potential potholes if the evidence isn’t examined according to proper protocols and standards.
