The Anti-Fraud Fundamentals Certificate Program will provide you with the basic knowledge you need to become a more valuable asset in your company’s fight against fraud, even if you have limited or no anti-fraud training or experience. 

This certificate program is designed for individuals who may not possess extensive anti-fraud experience. While it does not replace the Certified Fraud Examiner credential, this program equips you with essential knowledge to recognize and address fraud risks.

To earn this certificate, you will need to complete 8 of the 13 courses available in the program. Our program gives you the flexibility to customize your learning experience by allowing you to choose the courses that will provide you with the information most relevant to your interests, your job and your organization’s anti-fraud efforts.

After completing the program and earning your certificate you will receive a digital badge that is a secure means of storing, publishing and promoting your accomplishment online. Learn more about ACFE certificate program digital badges.
