In Practice: Financial Crime Investigation

In Practice: Financial Crime Investigation

The Cifas Fraud and Cyber Academy In Practice courses are designed for busy professionals operating across a range of functions and roles who wish to gain an efficient yet comprehensive foundation in the prevention and investigation of financial crime, with an exclusive focus on acquiring practical skills and knowledge that allows you to immediately apply your learning in the workplace. 

Our In Practice courses do not include pre-or-ongoing course work, exams or post-course assignments, and are accredited by Cifas Fraud and Cyber Academy. In Practice courses are ideal for professionals who do not need the more detailed study that a fraud and risk specialist may require, but who work in fields where they directly or indirectly encounter or manage instances of financial crime, including:

  • Operations
  • Finance
  • Human Resources
  • Compliance
  • IT and Security
  • Legal
  • Internal Audit and Risk


Fraud and risk professionals are still welcome to undertake In Practice courses as a time-saving initiative, to establish a knowledge foundation, or to undertake a refresher. Some In Practice courses can be used to fast-track your progress on specific Professional Certificates for those who wish to go on to acquire an accredited qualification – please check the individual course details to see if this applies.
