The CFE as an Expert Witness  CPE Credit: 3
Course Level: Intermediate
Prerequisite: Fundamental understanding of the trial process


 

 

Description:  

 

Certified Fraud Examiners serve a wide variety of functions in the anti-fraud profession. One of the most difficult roles for a CFE to perform effectively is that of the expert witness because this task requires a formidable degree of experience and knowledge. There are also aspects of being an expert witness that can seem intimidating at first, such as cross-examination by seasoned attorneys who are out to discredit you.

This course identifies the essential knowledge and skills you need to be a qualified, well-prepared and successful expert witness. You will review the legal standards used to evaluate an expert witness, examine the traits needed to be an ideal expert witness, learn how to give expert testimony and compose proper expert reports.

You Will Learn How To: 

 

Review the legal standards for giving expert testimony
Become the ideal expert witness
Prepare relevant and admissible testimony
Create proper expert reports
Define confidentiality and privileges
Organize and give effective testimony during depositions, direct testimony,
         and cross-examination

Online Self-Study Troubleshooting Guide:

Problem: When I attempt to access my courses from “My Online Learning,” the course never launches, or I receive an error message saying my pop-up blocker needs to be turned off.

Solution: Your web browser must be configured to allow pop-ups in order to access ACFE Self-Study courses. Your browser may prompt you to allow pop-ups, or you may have to allow them manually. You may either allow them for all sites, or allow them just for the current site.

For information on how to manage your pop-up blocker settings in a specific browser, click the link below that corresponds to the browser you are using:

  Internet Explorer
  Google Chrome
  Firefox

Also note that many toolbars, such as the Google Toolbar and Yahoo! include pop-up blockers as well. If you have one or more toolbars installed on your browser with built-in pop-up blockers, you must configure them to allow pop-ups.

Problem: When I click on a course from “My Online Learning,” I am presented with a login page, but my ACFE.com username and password won’t allow me to log in.

Solution: You do not have to log in a second time to access your online self-study. You most likely reached the login page because you clicked the link labeled “Click Here” as shown below:

 

  Online SS Image Absorb Error 

 

Do not click that link; instead, allow your browser to automatically open the eLearning window on its own, which should happen after a few seconds. This will log you in automatically so that you can access your online courses.

 

Problem: I receive the following error when I try to load a different lesson with a course:

 

  SS Online API Error 

 

Solution: This occurs in Internet Explorer when trying to load a different lesson without closing the current lesson. This error can be avoided two different ways:

 

Always close the current lesson before going to another one. Always click the Close Window button (usually the red “X” in the upper right corner) of the current lesson before clicking on another lesson.


Use a different browser. This error seems to only occur in Internet Explorer, so using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome should resolve the issue (see below for links to download either of these browsers).

 
Other Troubleshooting Tips: If you encounter other errors, such as courses freezing or crashing, we recommend taking the following action:
 

Try a different browser. ACFE online self-study courses are designed to run on all modern web browsers, but if you encounter a problem that is not solved using one of the suggestions above, you can try using a different web browser to see if it eliminates the problem. We have most frequently seen where using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome has resolved an issue that was seen in Internet Explorer.

 
Mozilla Firefox can be downloaded here
Google Chrome can be downloaded here 

 

Make sure you are running the latest version of Flash. Go to Adobe.com to see what version of Flash you are running, and then compare that to the table on that page to see what the latest version is for your operating system/browser combination. If you are not running the newest version, you should upgrade and see if that resolves the problem.
