The COVID lockdown has certainly caused some changes to the way we deliver the training. Coupled with this has been the reaccreditation of all our ACFS training materials by our academic institution, the University of Northumbria (Newcastle). If these changes weren’t enough to be going on with, the Counter Fraud Professional Accreditation Board (CFPAB) called for a root and branch review of the ACFS and ACFTech syllabi – work undertaken by the Boards Training and Education Committee (TEC) led by Peter in his role as Chair of the TEC. The review was completed in the Autumn of 2020 and we are very pleased to say that the University have completed their reaccreditation of PDA’s ACFS and ACFTech materials. Materials are reaccredited every three years. The review conducted by the TEC not only looked at the syllabi and what should be included but also made a series of recommendations that impact on the number of hours of learning students are required to undertake to achieve the awards. A student completing the ACFS programme of learning will undergo 400 hours of learning, 120 taught hours in the classroom and 280 hours of self-learning, research and three assignments. For the ACFTech 100 hours of learning.
We have redesigned the PDA ACFS Programme to be delivered over 21 Modules, currently 20 are delivered via Zoom and the final Module, four days in the classroom. We have retained all of the value for money elements which makes the PDA ACFS Programme the most cost effective value for money ACFS training on the market. Students continue to receive their personal copy of the ACFS Handbook published by Wiley, we continue to use role actor and case study and one of the more popular elements of the Programme, cross examination by our Barrister, Mike Mason.
