Certified Fraud Control Manager (CFCM) Certification Bootcamp

Monday - Wednesday

Course Overview

Small-class format: 20 participant limit

Internal fraud is costing your organization big money. 

And in these times, more than ever.

 
YouTubeIn a world fraught with personal and corporate financial insecurity, the need for skilled and knowledgeable fraud-control professionals has never been greater. As profits drop and budgets tighten, many internal employees feel forced to become "creative" with internal accounts. Employees and management alike now face multiple layoffs - often eliminating employee loyalty while making employees desperate with the prospect of living in a global economy that has all but collapsed. 

Cutting budgets? Can’t afford training?

Fraud is a cost too. It has been estimated that internal occupational fraud and abuse costs organizations around 7% of gross revenues. 7 percent! One-fourth of the fraud schemes involve losses greater than $1 million. Most of the frauds are committed by either employees (39.7%) or managers (37.1%). Internal fraud costs your organization a lot of money without ever showing itself on the books as an expense, but it must be controlled as any other costly threat to the organization. Your organization needs to stop this hemorrhage of profits, and it needs to recover what has already been lost. If your organization is trying to cut expenses and save money, don’t allow the expensive disease of fraud and corruption to continue to thrive just because you don’t want to spend money on the less costly knowledge and skills necessary to control the problem.

This award-winning course will help you and your company:

  • Assess your organization's current capabilities to properly prevent, detect, investigate, and recover losses resulting from internal fraud or abuse.
  • Create and take back a hard-copy comprehensive fraud risk assessment.
  • Detect a wide variety internal fraud and corruption, including (but not limited to) purchasing and acquisition fraud, payroll fraud, check fraud, reporting fraud, and abuse of company assets.
  • Effectively investigate suspicions of internal fraud or abuse to support recovery of losses, possible termination or disciplinary proceedings, or even potential prosecution.
  • Prepare you and your attendees for optional testing and accreditation as Certified Fraud Control Associates, Professionals, or Managers.

Course Overview

Small-class format: 20 participant limit

Once the right people have learned how to find evidence of fraud, train them to investigate and interview.

YouTubeEven good employees sometimes do bad things. If your organization encounters an instance of employee abuse or fraud such as misuse of company resources, theft of assets, fraudulent disbursement, or other issues, investigation of the incident will require interviewing and interrogating employees. Such interviews require special preparation, documentation, and interviewing skills in order to resolve cases of internal fraud or abuse.

What are people hiding from you? Clients, customers and even colleagues may each be hiding something from you. Learn how to be more effective in asking questions and evaluating responses so you can better detect lies and uncover the truth. By enhancing your interview techniques, you will get more information, more insight and less deception from everyone you interview. Even experienced professionals will improve their interviewing skills with this renowned course.

This two-day workshop will give you the knowledge and skills you need to effectively interview and interrogate witnesses, conspirators, and perpetrators potentially involved with incidents of fraud or abuse. Set into a practical workshop format, important concepts are reinforced through your in-class analysis of real videotaped interviews from actual investigations of two cases of internal employee fraud. Concepts are further reinforced through 14 workshop case studies you will help solve in class along with other attendees.
