Each of The Fraud Practice’s online training courses and Certification Tracks have final exams, and each provide Certificates of Completion, meeting criteria for Self-Study CPE credits.

Our training programs are considered Fraud-Related CPE credits, with courses falling under Check and Credit Card Fraud, Computer and Internet Fraud, and Consumer Fraud categories.

If you previously completed training programs purchased from or elsewhere from The Fraud Practice, these can count towards CPE credit requirements within the 12 month period of when the course was completed. Upon completion of the course by passing the final exam certificates are provided automatically. Please contact your training course instructor for an additional certificate that includes the total CPE credit hours earned printed on it, as per ACFE requirements.
