Forensic accountants or auditors take a unique focus on performing their work.  Typically, when a person with forensic experience is called in to examine financial records, it is due to suspicion of fraud, evaluation of assets, or even to track down fundamentally incorrect accounting – intentional or not.

As fraud continues to raise its head in business processes, forensic accountants are discovering new and unique ways to identify, examine, and support their hypotheses and investigative techniques.  The work performed by a forensic specialist can be interesting and full of potential potholes if evidence isn’t examined according to proper protocols and standards.

In this course, we examine the many processes and roles of the forensic accountant.  We discuss rules of evidence and the accountant’s potential need to testify in a court of law.  Learners will come away with an in-depth understanding of the world of forensic accounting and the many ways in which it may differ from the typical accountant’s role.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone interested in finance, accounting, risk management or related fields.
