Course Summary & Details

This is a comprehensive program for experienced CFE writers that encompasses all of the components we believe you will need to pass the CFE.  It includes five days of in-class case-based training and supplemental online sessions.  The onsite portion of the course will run from August 4-8, 2017 in Toronto (location Ryerson University, Ted Rogers School of Management).

The program also includes practice cases for the pre-summer period to refresh case-writing skills prior to the course as well as all necessary practice cases to complete the recommended study plan after the in-class component.   All practice cases include full marking guides, marker grids, and online walkthroughs to show you writing examples and the recommended approach.  Practice cases during the in-class session will be marked.

At Densmore. we consider the quality of our cases and marking to be our key strength.  We invest hundreds of hours each year in understanding the CFE methodology, trends and expectations, and preparing our cases, so that our program reflects what you would expect to see on this year’s CFE.
