CFCM™is the expert-level fraud control certification for fraud control professionals with at least five years of qualified experience.
One of your primary responsibilities is protecting the organization from suffering losses and business disruption resulting from internal occupational fraud and abuse. Your experience in the field is an important component of your value to an employer. As a designated leader of fraud prevention, detection, and investigation processes, your employer counts on you to mitigate fraud risk throughout the enterprise. But experience just isn’t enough. Employers need something quantifiable and verifiable to show them you have the expertise they need, and you want to establish occupational identity with a respected certification in internal fraud risk prevention and mitigation. Earning the CFCM™ certification will give you the credential and proof of expertise today's employers require.
