Program Description

Due to increased financial litigation, increased regulation and regulatory enforcement, an increasing number of financial crimes, and a record number of bankruptcies and corporate restructurings, the demand for financial forensics services is set to soar. Unlike most financial forensics training that tends to be general in scope, the Foundations of Financial Forensics Workshop provides attendees with an understanding of the professional responsibilities and legal underpinnings necessary to providing credible financial forensics services along with an overview of the highest growth areas of financial forensics practice. The nationally recognized and seasoned financial forensic experts who teach the program also dive into the methodologies and approaches for calculating damages, financial investigative and forensic accounting techniques, skills development for communicating with judges, attorneys, and juries, and practice building strategies that are being employed by successful and emerging financial forensic analysts. Training and certification in this field will greatly assist CPAs and other financial experts to build their practice in this rapidly growing financial consulting niche. The workshop teaches to the body of knowledge for financial forensics and prepares attendees to achieve the Master Analyst in Financial Forensics™ (MAFF®) credential. MAFF candidates can fulfill the foundational experience prerequisite with attendance at this workshop.  The workshop teaches to the body of knowledge for financial forensics and prepares attendees to achieve the Master Analyst in Financial Forensics™ (MAFF®) credential.
