Densmore CFE Prep guides you through the entire CFE process. Our team invests hundreds of hours each year to understand the CFE evaluation methodology, testing trends, and marking expectations, so we can provide you with an accurate reflection of what you can expect on each day of the CFE. This course is intended for first-time writers taking Capstone 2.

We integrate the Capstone 2 module requirements, so you can work from one study plan with a clear strategy to prepare for the CFE. Through the use of original Densmore cases, a Scenario Flowcharts Workbook, online sessions, and more, we’ll help you prepare for CFE success and your future career.

Trying to decide between CFE Prep I or II?

CFE Prep I is best suited for candidates who want to get a jump start on their preparations and/or candidates who have less time off leading up to the CFE. The CFE Prep I upload dates for marking start before the Capstone 2 module workshop and are spread out over several weeks to help you balance the workload (March 29, April 20, May 6, May 13).

CFE Prep II is best suited for candidates who are off work during Capstone 2. The CFE Prep II upload dates for marking start after the Capstone 2 module workshop and the course is more condensed (April 13, April 20, May 6, May 13).

Day 2 Role

On Day 2 of the CFE, you will respond to the CFE Day 2 case by assuming one of four pre-selected roles: Assurance, Finance, Performance Management or Taxation.

CFE Day 1 Case

The following Capstone 1 cases will be offered for the May 2024 CFE:

  • January 2024 Capstone 1 case TBD (version 1) – from the January 2024 Capstone 1 module
  • Kingsdale Tea (version 2) – from the January 2023 Capstone 1 module

First-time writers must choose the case from the Capstone 1 module they completed, provided that case is available. Candidates who were previously unsuccessful on the CFE and candidates who are challenging the CFE, such as international candidates, can choose from either of the available cases offered for that sitting.
