Accredited Counter Fraud Courses

This portfolio of courses is for those working in the counter fraud arena in both the public and private sectors.  Courses are accredited by the Counter Fraud Professional Accreditation Board (CFPAB) who sets the syllabi and oversee the quality and effectiveness of the courses. 

Successful completion of the course means that the delegate can use the post nominal initials ACFS or ACFTech, indicating a qualified and competent counter fraud professional.  For practitioners it recognises their specialist skill set, and for industry it provides assurance that investigators have the required skills and knowledge to investigate appropriately. 

The Economic and Cyber Crime Academy is committed to delivering the best available versions of these qualifications.  We know how important a reliable benchmark for investigators is; so, our training is current and delivered by qualified, experienced and expert practitioners, backed up by stringent quality control procedures and a strong understanding of contemporary best practice.  We use experts from the City of London Police to provide examples of real operations and give their experiences first hand.
