No. The educational program is being designed to address the body of knowledge for the Forensic Accountant and will assist the individual in passing the exam, but the completion of the program is not necessary. The current requirement is to complete 75 hours of continuing education.
 
If I am interested in forensic accounting and I am a college student, where should I start?
