CFE Prep Courses - September 2021


For our September 2021 CFE Prep courses, we are currently offering online courses only.  Due to current COVID-19 group gathering restrictions, there is uncertainty as to whether onsite courses will be possible in the summer.  We will reassess the situation by January 31, 2021 and post an update here at that time.  If we are able to offer onsite courses, students who are currently enrolled in our online courses will be given the first opportunity to switch to an onsite course, if they choose.   

 

If you select a CFE Prep course that includes marking, upon checkout you will be required to select a set of submission deadlines for the cases marked as part of the CFE Prep course.  These cases must be written and submitted for marking by the deadlines noted below:  


CFE Prep I - July 7, 9, 10 and 13 - we recommend this if you are taking Capstone 2 and are off work as of the end of Capstone 1  

CFE Prep II - July 10, 14, 24 and 28 - we recommend this if you are taking Capstone 2 and are working during some/all of Capstone 2

CFE Prep III - July 24, 26, 31 and August 2 - we recommend this if you are an experienced writer and/or are not taking Capstone 2


If you will not be able to meet those deadlines, we recommend our CFE Prep - No Marking course.

Course Summary & Details

CFE Prep is a program tailored for experienced CFE writers (candidates who have written the CFE in a prior year) that encompasses the components we believe you need to pass the CFE.  It includes online case-based training and supplemental online sessions to be viewed prior to the course.  

The program also includes practice cases for the pre-course period to refresh case-writing skills as well as practice cases to help you complete the recommended study plan after the course.   All practice cases include full marking guides, marker grids, and online walkthroughs to show you writing examples and the recommended approach.  The four practice cases written as part of the CFE Prep 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.  

Included components:

- CFE Prep online sessions; as well as webinars spaced throughout July and August to answer questions and discuss CFE Success Tips
