    The program is very useful and really captured my interest. I had a deeper understanding and appreciation of what a forensic accounting is and how it differs with fraud audit. Being an audit officer of the bank, this seminar will surely help me in performing my duty particularly in the conduct of fraud investigation. In addition, I can also recommend incorporating fraud audit in our existing work program."
