ACFE Self-Directed Learning

Learn more about fraud detection, prevention and deterrence.

Do you need to learn more about fraud detection, prevention and deterrence? (If you are involved in the fight against fraud, the answer is, “Yes!”)

Is your schedule crowded, hectic and sometimes unpredictable?

Do you prefer to teach yourself, engaging with training materials in your own way?

Get the flexibility to learn at your own pace, wherever and whenever is best for you, with self-directed learning from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). Develop your skills while earning Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits with self-study courses or take a deep dive into a specific topic with a book or ACFE manual.

Self-Study Courses

ACFE self-study courses span a variety of topics ranging from .2 to 24 CPE per course.

Multiple formats available: online, PDF workbook, printed workbook or even one that is based on a documentary. 

Get CPE fast with online quizzes and downloadable, printable CPE certificates.

Review our selection of self-study courses and we’re confident you will find one that meets your training needs.

Books and Manuals

It’s not always about CPE. Sometimes you just need in-depth anti-fraud information to build your expertise or serve as a reference as you tackle the challenges of your work. We offer ACFE-authored manuals plus a carefully curated selection of third-party books to help you advance as an anti-fraud professional.

Check out our selection of books and manuals and see what catches your attention or piques your interest.

Please note: books and manuals are purely informational; they do not provide CPE.
