The ACFE offers all levels of instruction at our conferences. Potential instructors are advised to read over the following carefully before selecting an educational level. Once selected the ACFE reserves the right to change the instructional level based on the materials submitted. Written proposals should reflect the instructional level per the guidelines below. These guidelines are from the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA).
Program knowledge level most useful for individuals with mastery of the particular topic. This level focuses on the development on in-depth knowledge. Advanced-level programs are often appropriate for seasoned professionals within organizations; however, they may also be beneficial for other professionals with specialized knowledge in a subject area.
Program knowledge that builds on a basic program, most appropriate for CFEs (and others) with detailed knowledge in an area. Such persons are often in a mid-level position within an organization, with operational and/or supervisory responsibilities.
Program knowledge level most beneficial to CFEs (and others) new to a skill or attribute. These individuals are often at the staff or entry level in organizations, although such programs may also benefit a seasoned professional with limited exposure to the area.
