The CFE Exam Review Course, like all ACFE in-person events, is designed to foster interaction with instructors and fellow attendees. Dress is casual; leave your ties and heels at home. You may want to bring a light jacket or sweater for the classroom since hotel air conditioning is sometimes difficult to adjust to everyone's comfort. 

If you are planning on taking the paper-base CFE Exam, please bring your government-issued ID. 

If you have registered for the Review Course and are unable to attend, you must cancel your registration prior to the start date of the course.
