Certified Fraud Examiner CPE
Requirements: The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners requires CFEs to complete 20 hours of CPE per year. At least 10 of these 20 hours must relate directly to the detection and deterrence of fraud and at least 2 hours must relate directly to Ethics. Up to 10 CPE hours in excess of the minimum requirements may be carried forward to the following year.
Completing Your Recertification Requirements with PLI: Select PLI programs offer CPE credits in the areas of fraud-related, ethics-related, and non-fraud non-ethics related. To request Certified Fraud Examiner CPE credit for eligible programs, be sure to enter your license information on your account profile. Please note that it is ultimately the CFE's responsibility to determine if the content of this course falls into one of the ACFE-approved fields of study.
