Learn How to Investigate Fraud


If you want to learn how to do fraud investigations from a forensic accountant what has over 20 years of experience in the field… here’s your chance!

This course is for:

  • Accountants who want to begin doing financial investigations
  • Investigators who need training on the financial aspects of investigations
  • Students considering a career in forensic accounting

The course is divided into 4 classes that are each 2 hours long. You can take all of them or some of them. You can take them in any order. In other words, none of the classes is dependent on the others. Each could easily be taken alone.

This fraud investigation course is being offered by CPA Crossings. The classes are online, generally offered one  per week, so you could take all four courses with a calendar month. These are not your usual boring PowerPoint with voiceovers. You get actual videos of me teaching with PowerPoints used to supplement and highlight the material.

Here is a summary of the four sessions, along with my affiliate link to register for the class. (Please use my link so I can get credit for referring you to CPA Crossings and we can track the success of my postings.) In future posts, I’ll go into greater detail about each of the courses. The series kicks off on September 3, 2020.
