What you should know about forensic training
Forensic training is important as the reports issued by forensic specialists carry great significance attached
to them. That is why it is essential that when you receive forensic training that it comes from properly qualified and
reputable persons and organisations. The ASTM standards for forensic training suggest that forensic training should come
from court qualified forensic experts. If you wish for your forensic training to reach court acceptability levels then
you should ensure that your training instructors are properly qualified i.e. court qualified experts who can also ceritfy
your training. If this is not done then it is likely that any reports prepared by you and you yourself can be disqualified
from being used in legal matters thereby rendering any such training virtually worthless. If you are asked, has your trainer
been deemed an expert by the courts, can you answer yes?. As IFBI you can certainly answer yes to that question.
hallmark of the International Forensics & Business Institute is that we pride ourselves in providing the highest
quality forensic expertise and training possible and all of our training is provided by court qualified experts !
programs are some of the fastest growing, lucrative and exciting career advancement possibilities available in today's world.
Ensure that your forensic training is the best. Study at the International Forensics & Business Institute.
Choosing the length of your training
The length and type of forensic training you receive are also important. If you wish to improve your CV or add
to your training and qualifications or begin developing your forensic skills and do not wish to study for a longer period
then short term training is quite good. However, if you wish to be considered a specialist
in the field of forensic accounting then longer training periods are a must. If you spend lots
of money for a program and when asked by Counsel how may days of training have actually received and your answer is a mere
few days then you and your reports will hardly ever be used in any forensic deliberations. So it is also important to
consider the length and type of training you wish to pursue and for what purpose you want your training for. If
you are asked, has your trainer been deemed an expert by the courts, can you answer yes?. At IFBI you can certainly answer
yes to that question. We offer the full one-year certified program, and the Associate and Master's programs for those who
wish to study even further. Of course we also offer shorter version programs for those who wish to add to their credentials.
As importantly, in keeping with ASTM standards, always ensure that your forensic training always comes from court qualified
forensic experts for your studies, your work and your qualifications to always meet the highest standards! IFBI continues
to provide forensic training of the highest standards and always delivered by court qualified experts!
Caribbean Forensics & Financial Fraud Institute (CFI) has been receiveing
enquiries concerning another organisation which bears a name similar to ours leading to some confusion. Please note that
Caribbean Forensics & Financial Fraud Institute (CFI) is not associated or affiliated in any way whatsoever any
local company that bears a similar name.
Recently there has been newspaper articles
of someone of that institute making political allegations including a Newsday article listing that person as a 'suspended
ACCA student'. Please be advised that is NOT our Institute or anyone associated
with our institute. We completely distance ourselves from the contents of such articles. All our senior academic personnel
are bonafide experts in their respective fields. Our educators must possess at least a first
degree or possess ACCA or similar qualifications. We do not use unqualified personnel for our programs since
that can render any potential students' forensic qualification to be virtually useless if they are administered by unqualified
personnel. Please note that our Institute's policy is that we also do not make politcal pronouncements.
Caribbean Forensics & Financial Institute (and now
IFBI), however, does pride itself in being the region's premier provider of professional forensic training and expertise.
