Instructor for this course

This course provides a high-level overview and introduction into the world of the forensic accountant. Most accountants have an understanding of the concept of fraud and how it impacts companies, but many individuals do not have a full comprehension of the variance in the work performed by a forensic accountant versus a typical management accountant.  

This course is meant for those individuals interested in understanding the variances in the job tasks and responsibilities of forensic accountants versus typical financial or management accountants. 

Forensic accountants or auditors take a unique focus on performing their work.  Typically, when a person with forensic experience is called in to examine financial records, it is due to suspicion of fraud, evaluation of assets, or even to track down fundamentally incorrect accounting – intentional or not.

As fraud continues to raise its head in business processes, forensic accountants are discovering new and unique ways to identify, examine, and support their hypotheses and investigative techniques.  The work performed by a forensic specialist can be interesting and full of potential potholes if evidence isn’t examined according to proper protocols and standards.

In this course, we examine the many processes and roles of the forensic accountant.  We discuss rules of evidence and the accountant’s potential need to testify in a court of law.  Learners will come away with an understanding of the world of forensic accounting and the many ways in which it may differ from the typical accountant’s role.

Very good presentation of the role of a forensic accountant vs other accounting roles. Made very good examples of the issues and concerns a forensic accountant will deal in their profession. Could be done in 1 vs 2hr. I would recommend this course to anyone who is considering being a forensic accounting. Presentation style was excellent.

I probably did not review the description thoroughly enough, but I thought there would be more forensic accounting concepts and techniques. This was really more about "Here is what forensic accounting is about". Which is fine, but not what I was looking for. Otherwise, it was well presented and Lynn Fountain is a great presenter.

It was a good introduction. The slides were thorough. It is important to have review questions in the slides as well as having a review quiz for assessment of understanding and comprehension. I think that CPAs could benefit from understanding the differences between public accounting and forensic accounting.

A well taught course. The instructor was able to explain the various concepts and the differences between the forensic accountnat and the general accountant very well.I have learned that being a chartered accountant is not sufficient to make you an expert witness in Court. I strongly recommend this course.

Lynn, I just had total deja vue taking this course. Then I relized just now that I took it on your site and that this Illumeo is my second trip to the rodeo. No wonder I got a 90% on the test. Too funny. I am totally forensic now. Still a great course even second time around. Best, Larry
