Calculating Eligibility Criteria for CAME Certifications

Members can be certified by only taking the uniform examination. There are no honorary certification or waiver of the examination. If you do not have experience working on fraud cases, you are encouraged to gain the practical knowledge in one of the fields of Accounting or Auditing or Investigating skills.

Academic Requirements

Generally, applicants for Forensic Accounting certification have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) from an institution of higher learning. No specific field of study is required. If you do not have a Bachelor’s degree, you may substitute years of fraud-related professional experience for each year of academic study. When you apply, you will be awarded qualifying points for the specific level of education you claim.

Professional Requirements

At the time you are certified, you must have at least two years of professional experience in a field either directly or indirectly related to the detection or deterrence of fraud.

The Point System

If you have 40 points then you are eligible for exam, if your profile secures 80 points then you are eligible for the waiver and if you have less than 40 points then we recommend that you should wait till you complete 40 points.

The Course eligibility is decided on the basis of Point system in order to maintain the High ethical standards of the Designation. In order to get certified minimum 40 points are required. The candidate can appear for the examination before having requisite points but will be awarded certification only after completion of the eligibility criterion and membership fees.
