CFF Exam Content Specification Outline (CSO) - The CFF credential program is built around content areas that encompass professional responsibilities and practice management; fundamental forensic knowledge; and specialized forensic knowledge.
The key to passing the examination is a combination of utilizing the body of knowledge referenced in the CSO coupled with applying this body of knowledge by obtaining relevant work experience in forensic accounting.
Accordingly, although it is not a strict requirement, it is our recommendation that candidates choose to sit for the exam only after they have completed the required 1,000 hours of forensic accounting experience.
