The Point System
Your eligibility to be certified is based upon a point system, which awards credit for education and experience.
All candidates certified by exam must have a minimum of two years professional experience and 50 points. All points claimed for education must be from a recognized institution of higher learning.
If your total qualifying points total 40 or above, you may apply for the CFE Exam, but all applicants must have 50 or more points and two years of professional experience to become certified.
