To hold the eCommerce Fraud Professional with the “Certified by The Fraud Practice” designation a candidate must complete the structured course regimen and be manually vetted upon applying for the program to confirm their professional experience in the industry. Once admitted into the program candidates must prove they are considered a Subject Matter Expert in the CNP payments and/or fraud space as well.

      b.   or by writing an original document, article, white paper or other publication that is available in the                   public domain (such as on a public website or professional blog).

What are the Requirements for Certification by the fraud practice?

Prior to being admitted into the eCommerce Fraud Professional Program candidates must submit an application providing information on their professional experience in an eCommerce related job role and experience in a fraud prevention related job role.

Once being admitted into the eCommerce Fraud Professional Program participants are able to begin the course materials and work through the steps to complete certification. The primary requirements of the certification are focused on attending the course lessons and passing the quizzes, course exams and comprehensive final exam, although there are additional requirements as well. The certification candidate must complete all 16 individual courses, each consisting of multiple lessons and quizzes. Each course is followed by a final exam and an 80% correct rate is required to pass the final exam and move on to the next course. Each of the 16 courses must be completed with a passing exam grade and the candidate will then be eligible to take the comprehensive final exam, covering information from all of the 16 courses, which also requires an 80% correct rate to pass.

In addition to passing the course exams and comprehensive final exams the candidate's professional experience must be confirmed by their professional references that were provided during the application process. In the event professional experience cannot be confirmed or references cannot be reached the candidate must provide alternative references.

A significant requirement to achieve the eCommerce Fraud Professional Certification is to prove oneself as a Subject Matter Expert in the eCommerce and fraud prevention space. This can be achieved in one of multiple ways and may be completed by providing evidence of a past event or document that meets this requirement, by completing this requirement while enrolled, or by completing this requirement within 12 months of enrolling in the eCommerce Fraud Professional Program. There are two ways to meet this requirement: by speaking or presenting at a recognized professional industry event or trade show (such as the MRC, DRF, CNP Expo, etc.); or by writing an original document, article, white paper or other publication that is available in the public domain (such as on a public website or professional blog). For candidates that do not already meet either of these requirements, The Fraud Practice provides a channel for publishing an article online through an industry partner to meet this requirement.

For candidates that have already presented, or will soon be presenting, on a topic related to eCommerce, e-payments and/or fraud prevention at a recognized industry event, they may complete this requirement by furnishing sufficient proof that they presented on the applicable topic (such as a copy of the event schedule including their name and discussion topic/title). Candidates providing a written publication may send previous article URLs which will be considered for meeting this requirement. Candidates that need to create an article or published document are able to do so on a wide range of topic ideas pertaining to the payments and fraud industries, but these topics and documents must be approved by The Fraud Practice for meeting this requirement. The article must provide real content and value and will be made available in the public domain for other fraud and payment professionals to read.
