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 CFE Exam on-site, 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 first day of the event in order to get a refund.
