AICPA to Offer New Forensics Designation

A new accounting credential, the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) designation, will be launched by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants this fall. The CFF will cover bankruptcy and insolvency, computer forensics, economic damages, family law, fraud investigation, litigation support, stakeholder disputes and valuations.

To earn the designation, a CPA will need five years accounting experience, plus continuing education and specific business experience.

The CFF will be the AICPA’s fourth designation, joining the Accredited in Business Valuation (CPA/ABV), Certified Information Technology Professional (CPA/CITP) and Personal Financial Specialist (CPA/PFS).
