Essentials Prep Program

This CFE prep program is designed for CPA candidates taking limited time off of work to study for the CFE, but who would still like some additional one-on-one feedback to supplement CPA Canada's Capstone 2 marking. Even with limited study time, you can pass this exam if you use your time efficiently. We can help you plan your studying, even if you only have 3 weeks off of work.

The essentials prep program is designed to work with CPA candidates’ schedules in August/September 2017, considering Capstone 2 commitments, and work commitments. The course can be done concurrently with Capstone 2, without any scheduling conflict. 

Our essentials CFE prep package includes:

  • 1 hour 40 minutes of private one-on-one debrief sessions over skype.
  • 1 comprehensive (5 hour long cases) and 3 multi (70-90 min. short cases) simulations marked with detailed notes and completed marking grid, returned within 24 hours.
  • 12 practice cases (3 comps and 9 multis), with suggested solutions, marking grids, annotated sample responses with corresponding marking grids, online debrief video for each. These cases are based on past UFE cases but have been modified by CFE Success to better reflect the CFE structure.
  • 10+ online videos teaching you how to outline and approach each type of case, how to achieve depth and breadth, how to debrief, among other important topics.
  • Live Webinar Q&A with Jennifer Cartwright, CPA, CA, CBV at the start and end of the program. 
  • Access to moderated discussion board.
  • 1 one-on-one coaching call with Jennifer Cartwright, CPA, CA, CBV.

$1,250 + sales tax.

20% deposit to reserve a space, with the balance due in July 2017.

What happens on the day when you have a case scheduled with CFE Success?


*Specific days of the week may change, in particular if Capstone 2 makes any changes to their typical schedule, as we need to make sure that your CFE Success case writing/marking schedule lines up with your Capstone 2 case writing/marking schedule.
