The Institute of Certified Forensic Accountants (ICFA) is a professional body for those committed to the development of the multidisciplinary profession of forensic accounting. We aim to promote and develop the profession of forensic accountancy to the public and to those people involved in providing forensic advice and guidance to their clients.
In this day and age, fraud is pervasive, creating an environment where no entity or individual is immune to the potential financial devastation. The demand has never been higher for forensic accounting professionals with the education, skills and experience to detect and deter fraud.
Forensic accountants are also key in legal actions and disputes related to family law, jeopardized businesses and compromised individuals. Attorneys depend on forensic accountants to explain, present and investigate issues that their clients bring to them, as well as provide expert witness as needed.
This program provides critical and current instruction for the forensic accounting professional to:
• Perform audits for fraud prevention, detection and response
• Reconstruct income and the calculation of damages
• Perform interviews and interrogations
• Understand investigation techniques and sources of information
