This includes writing books, and articles, and developing courses for instruction or self-study purposes. 
  • Designees may obtain points for teaching/presenting in these relevant areas, as well.

CLICK HERE to view our CPE programs which are suitable for Continuing Education for MAFF.

  • MAFF credential holders only need to attest to having completed 60 hours of “Applicable” CPE credits to comply with tri-annual recertification and pay the applicable recertification fee. 
  • Reporting courses taken and CPE hours earned is optional, though it is recommended to track this information, if not on the Recertification Reporting Form, in personal records.
  • Provide the name of the course, the sponsor, the date attended, and the number of hours of CPE received on the lines provided on the Reporting Form, or attach a separate list or spreadsheet.
  • Completion and submission of the Recertification Reporting Form serve as your attestation to CPE earned, or if not reported, it can be substantiated if you are asked to do so.

The annual recertification fee of MAFF is $300; however, by taking any of the seven recommended programs (CAP, CUV, Report Writing, Litigation Report Writing, Industry Standards Update webinar, the Around the Valuation World webcast subscription, or Mastering the Six Pillars of Business Appraisal Review) your fee could be offset by $150 each and your total could be $0.

No, this fee is only for members who have not been using their credentials, are on “Inactive Status,” have not maintained their membership with NACVA, and wish to re-activate their credentials.

  • CPE hours, points, and bonus points are all separate entities. Each hour of CPE you earn equals the same number of points (i.e., 17 hours of CPE = 17 points). Bonus points, however, are awarded when you attend one of our seven recommended programs (CAP, CUV, Report Writing, Litigation Report Writing, Industry Standards Update webinar, the Around the Valuation World webcast subscription, or Mastering the Six Pillars of Business Appraisal Review)
  • Bonus points can be used to offset the $300 Recertification Fee Determination. 
  • For any of the recommended courses you attend, you receive an additional 12 bonus points toward your total point accumulation and a $150 credit that is then deducted from the Fee Determination.

No, the Short video (Nano learning) method is not approved for the CPE requirements for Master Analyst in Financial Forensics.

No, a Master Analyst in Financial Forensics (MAFF) cannot carry over excess credit earned in a particular renewal cycle.

MAFFs who have been advised that they do not meet the recertification requirements may appeal to the NACVA Management Team, including the CEO, Executive Director, and Chief Operations Officer. This appeal should be in writing, along with the appellant’s reasoning as to why they do qualify, and any documentation to assist the Management Team in deciding.

  • A six-month recertification deadline may be provided to designees located in areas directly affected by a natural disaster. Designees located in affected areas may request a six-month extension either by phone or email.
  • When appropriate (e.g., following a particularly severe disaster), HQ may choose to inform all designees located in a natural disaster area of the recertification deadline extension.
  • The extension is only applicable in the three-year reporting period for which the extension is requested and does not change, or extend, any subsequent recertification reporting periods or deadlines.

The CPE reporting cycle for Newly Certified Master Analysts in Financial Forensics professionals starts with the first full calendar year after receiving the designation and in three-year cycles thereafter.
