- ABOUT LAKELAND
Lakeland College business faculty members Rick Gaumer and Bob Martin have earned the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) credential from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.
Gaumer is an associate professor of accounting at Lakeland, and Martin is an instructor of accounting.
Lakeland is the only Wisconsin college/university with a forensic accounting emphasis track as part of its accounting major.
"Broadening the study of forensic accounting to more than just a single class, which is typical at most schools, provides another viable career track for accounting students," Gaumer said. "Our students are trained to better understand and to apply internal controls and fraud prevention practices in the workplace.
"We're the only program in the state with two faculty members with CFE certification, which allows us to better prepare students for forensic accounting careers."
Lakeland forensic accounting students are available to assist local businesses in assessing fraud risk exposure and applying fraud prevention concepts to an organization. Contact Gaumer at email@example.com or Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about this service.
Gaumer and Martin passed a rigorous exam administered by the ACFE and demonstrated knowledge in four areas: fraudulent financial transactions, criminology and ethics, legal elements of fraud and fraud investigation.
CFEs have the ability to examine data and records to detect and trace fraudulent transactions, interview suspects to obtain information and confessions, write investigation reports, advise clients and testify at trial.
The ACFE is the world's largest anti-fraud organization and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education.
