The American Institute of CPAs has introduced a new certificate program for accounting firms expanding their financial forensics practice.

The new program, introduced Wednesday, provides a self-guided online course of study leading to a Forensic Accounting Educational Certificate. The coursework for the AICPA’s new certificate involves learning best practices for producing work products that will withstand scrutiny in a courtroom, boardroom or other administrative venue; forensic knowledge pertaining to laws, courts and dispute resolution; planning and preparation requirements for a variety of unique forensic engagements; and basic federal and state rules of evidence. The course develops specialized skills that can be applied to fields such as bankruptcy and insolvency, computer forensic analysis, family law, economic damages, valuations, and fraud prevention.
