Compliance Requirements for eCommerce Online Training Course

The Fraud Practice’s online professional training and certification programs count towards continuing professional education requirements to maintain the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) professional designation, Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE).

The ACFE requires CFEs to maintain their credential by earning at least 20 hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits each year, with at least 10 of these hours being related to the detection and deterrence of fraud.

Each of The Fraud Practice’s online training courses and Certification Tracks have final exams, and each provide Certificates of Completion, meeting criteria for Self-Study CPE credits. Student attendance, completion and grade information is maintained in The Fraud Practice’s online training Learning Management System (LMS), so records can be easily provided to validate completion of CPE credit hours.

All of the training courses listed on this page meet ACFE requirements and are considered Fraud Related CPE credits.

I have read fraud prevention books but none of them organize or quantify the topics in such a useful and practical way. Books I have come across are often too theoretical and broad, but this is more about solving real business problems.
