For instance, the likelihood of promotional opportunities for security personell (G4s, Wells Fargo Limited, Bob Morgan Security Ltd among others) rises by 100%, for those with CFE compared to those who have no CFE. Auditors with CFE are 3 times more likely to get greener opportunities elsewhere. Officers in law enforcement (Police service, CID) with CFEs are 1.8 times more likely to be given investigative assignments or be headhunted for private employment.
- Gain professional visibility and credibility
The CFE is accepted worldwide as the standard of excellence in the anti-fraud profession. A CFE is more likely to handle his/her assignments with higher level of confidence and competence and hence be taken more seriously in their professions.
See for instance, the level of credibility bestowed to CID Director George Kinoti and the Director of public Prosecutions Noordin Haji.
