Earn the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) credential and take your forensic accounting knowledge to the next level.
Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) offers this leading post-CPA credential in association with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
The Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) credential is granted exclusively to professional accountants (as deemed by a governing body) who demonstrate considerable expertise in forensic accounting through their knowledge, skills and experience. The CFF credential encompasses fundamental and specialized forensic accounting skills that practitioners apply in a variety of service areas. By obtaining the CFF credential, qualified CPA Canada members who are forensic accounting practitioners, internal auditors, controllers or CFOs will benefit greatly by positioning themselves as trusted accounting service providers.
The AICPA has proposed new CPA professional standards for members who perform forensic services engagements.
The proposed “Statement on Standards for Forensic Services No. 1” (SSFS 1) is intended to provide more tailored authoritative guidance to members that perform forensic services, and protect the public interest. The standards are currently open for comment through Feb. 28, 2019.
Please read the proposed standard and send your comments to Barbara Andrews, Director - Forensic Services on or before February 28, 2019.
