Our entry-level online forensic accounting classes are ideal for newcomers and existing accountancy workers alike.  Study the art of effective forensic accountancy and fraud detection over three modules, each of which concludes with an online assessment:

Module 1 - Forensic and Investigative Accounting - An Overview

Module one defines ‘forensic accountancy’ in terms of both the profession and the broader concept.  The role of the forensic accountant in a fraud-detection and prevention context is explored, along with the responsibilities of other key forensic personnel including internal and external auditors.

Module 2 - Spotting a Typical Fraudster

Module two provides an in-depth dissection of the psychology of the fraudster, detailing how to spot a potential fraudster through notable behaviours and characteristics.  Candidates also learn how to identify the individuals and businesses facing the biggest threat from fraudsters today.

Module 3 - Effective Techniques for Fraud Detection

Module three discusses the benefits of proactive fraud prevention as an alternative to the detection of fraudulent activities and their subsequent resolution.  The most common signs of fraud are discussed, along with a series of fraud risk factors, financial statement fraud, revenue recognition detection and more.
