CFE Prep First Time Writers


Pay Deposit Only: 300.00

Course Summary & Details

CFE Prep is a program for first time CFE writers.  It provides excellence in teaching that candidates have consistently rated as the best they have ever experienced.  There are five days of onsite or online case-based training (you will pick your onsite location or online timeslot when you checkout) and supplemental online sessions to be viewed prior to the course to assist you with Capstone 1. 

This program gives you approach strategies and skills development for all three days of the CFE. All practice cases include full marking guides, marker grids, and online walkthroughs to show you writing examples and the recommended approach.  Practice cases written during the course 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.

This is a license for a single user.
