It covers all four sections of the CFE Exam: Investigation, Law, Financial Transactions and Fraud Schemes, and Fraud Prevention and Deterrence. You can choose which section you want to study and when you want to study it. The same goes for the individual modules contained within in each section. Each module covers one or more topics and lasts, on average, about one hour. You can complete this course in the order that works best for you whenever it is convenient to you.
  • Will my subscription renew automatically?

    No, once your subscription has expired, you will simply lose access to the Prep Course+. Your credit card will not be charged a second time.

  • Can I re-watch the videos?
    Absolutely. One of the advantages of the on-demand format is that you can re-watch videos any time prior to your course expiring.
  • How long will I be able to access the On-Demand CFE Exam Review Course?
    You will be able to access this course for one year from your purchase date or until you have passed the CFE Exam, whichever occurs first. At that time, the course will expire and you will no longer be able to access the On-Demand CFE Exam Review Course or view the videos.
  • Can I share the on-demand course with other people?
    No. The On-Demand CFE Exam Review Course and all products included with the CFE Exam Prep Course+ cannot be shared with others.
  • Will I receive CPE for viewing the On-Demand CFE Exam Review Course?
    The format of the course does not meet the requirements of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy’s (NASBA’s) definition of a self-study or live course. Therefore, we cannot issue NASBA-compliant CPE for this course; however, your local licensing body may still grant CPE. Please contact the organization in which you plan to claim CPE to determine if they grant CPE for completion of this course.
