Description

Acquire the case experience and know-how you need to excel in your job. This 3-day advanced course takes place in a uniquely interactive learning environment where you will work on two actual fraud cases that have been modified for teaching purposes. Working through these scenarios, you will simulate many aspects of a real case — interviewing a suspect and trying to obtain a confession; compiling evidence and building your case; and offering testimony and being cross-examined. By understanding how it feels to be part of a small team working on a real investigation, you will enhance your skills as a fraud examiner and expand your capabilities. 

While in Austin, your visit to ACFE headquarters will provide a unique opportunity to experience the Fraud Museum exhibit, located in the offices of the Geis Building. Established by ACFE founder and Chairman, Dr. Joseph T. Wells, CFE, CPA, the Fraud Museum tells the story of fraud’s intriguing past with an extensive and eclectic collection of historical fraud pieces. The ACFE Open House reception also welcomes you to the Gregor Building, a historic, 1920s-era home that houses the ACFE’s executive and administrative staff. Tour the building and meet ACFE staff members as you visit the home of the world’s premier anti-fraud association.
