AICPA Forensic Q&A - Week 5

I already have an Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) credential; do I need the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) credential?
A Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) credential is not mandatory for anyone, but the credential does provide for the recognition of your competency in both the Valuation practice area and the Forensic Accounting area. We have observed that many CPAs who have the ABV credential have opted to obtain the CFF credential as well.
 
The eligibility requirements to obtain the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) indicate one must have at least five years of accounting experience. Does this mean I have to be a CPA for those same five years?
No, but you must hold a valid and unrevoked CPA certificate issued by a legally constituted state authority at the time your CFF Credential application is submitted.
 
How can I announce publicly that I now hold the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) Credential?
Upon becoming a CFF Credential holder, why not publicize your achievement by asking your local media to publish a press release. Use the sample CFF press release template, available at Aicpa.org/fvs, to create your own press release.
