Congratulations! By registering for the CFE Exam Review Course, you are one step closer to becoming a Certified Fraud Examiner. Here are a few things you need to know to help you achieve your goal:
To get the most out of the Review Course, we encourage you to do some studying in advance with the CFE Exam Prep Course software. To download the course, log in to
ACFE.com/MyCFEExamPrepCourse. Before you begin the Prep Course, please refer to the
course guidebook for additional information.
If you have not already joined the ACFE as an Associate member,
join now online. You must be a member to take the CFE Exam.
If you have not previously submitted a CFE Exam application, the deadline for submitting your application is two weeks prior to the course start date. A completed CFE Exam application is required to take the CFE Exam. Submit your
CFE Exam application online and visit the Certification Portal at
ACFE.com/CertificationPortal to submit your supporting documentation, which includes:
Please allow three to five business days to review and process supporting documentation. You will be notified by email that your application is complete.
The on-site exam is only for course attendees and is administered in written form. The on-site exam follows the same format as the electronic exam: 100 questions per section. You will read the questions and mark your answers on a Scantron answer sheet. An ACFE staff member will grade your test on-site and provide your results for each section within a few minutes.
The current exam schedule is as follows:
Taking the CFE Exam on-site is optional.
If you fail a section of the CFE Exam, you may retake it either on your own computer or on-site during any of the times listed above. There is no charge for retaking sections. You will only need to retake those sections that you do not pass.
If you pass all four sections, you will receive a personalized letter confirming your achievement. There’s more to becoming certified than just passing the CFE Exam, however. You are not officially a CFE (and not eligible to use the credential) until your CFE Exam application has been submitted and approved by the ACFE certification team. When you have officially been certified, your CFE certificate will be mailed to you (usually within two to three weeks).
