New mentoring program helps CPAs interested in CFF credential


The AICPA established the Certified in Financial Forensics Mentor Program, which is designed for AICPA members interested in developing their skills and business practices in forensic accounting through the help of more experienced forensic professionals.

CPAs who apply to the program will be paired with mentors who hold the AICPA’s Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) credential. Mentors will be assigned to protégés based on an individualized model, which weighs their specific needs and interests. Mentors will provide guidance and help their protégés understand how the financial forensics industry works, while easing their assimilation into the field.
