The "Financial Crime (FC) 201 - Financial Records Investigative Skills" (FRIS) course builds on the concepts introduced in "FC 101 - Financial Investigations Practical Skills" and "FC 105 - Financial Records Examination and Analysis," introducing investigators and prosecutors to emerging issues in financial crime.

  • Financial data. Learn about spreadsheeting, Benford's law analysis, and creating an electronic case file.
  • Interview skills. Conduct mock interviews with detailed feedback from peers and instructors.
  • Hands-on experience. Work a mock financial case as part of an investigative team.

FRIS students should have basic proficiency with spreadsheeting applications such as Microsoft Excel.
