The Art & Science of Investigating People & Money©

Despite the chronic and compelling need for financial forensics and forensic accounting expertise, the accounting and financial professions have yet to embrace or even offer a cogent and comprehensive forensic accounting tools-based methodology. That deficiency has plagued our economy…until now. The Forensic Accounting Academy© (Academy) is the most all-inclusive training in forensic accounting available to date. The intensive and hands-on training provides a one-stop source of 300+ tools, techniques, methods, and methodologies applicable to virtually any large or small financial matter, whether civil, criminal, or dispute, and defines the financial forensics/ forensic accounting profession: “The Art & Science of Investigating People & Money©.”

The Academy centers around the Forensic Accounting Investigation Methodology© (FAIM©), a proprietary Internet-based hyperlinked methodology which delivers immediately useable and practical skills—NOT theory—that attendees will immediately deploy upon return to their responsibilities. This primer is ideal for CPAs, law enforcement (federal, state, local), regulators, investigators, agents, attorneys, prosecutors, business advisors, bankers, fiduciaries, and business owners—in short, those who may not intend to focus a practice on financial forensics yet want to understand the applicability of the discipline in their pursuits.
