  • Being a Certified Fraud Examiner is a great achievement for any individual in this industry during these times. The experience which I have personally gained has enhanced my investigative abilities and increased my contact list in tremendous bounds due to the on-going networking opportunities to which all CFE are exposed on a regular basis. The training further gives us tools and assists us to understand new trends and investigative methods which all investigators are exposed to on a regular basis. In all, I feel that this experience has enriched my life and open up doors to me in all industries! – Lucretia Parker: McLife
