How do I become a forensic accountant/auditor?

I have a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and I have been working at a large bank in the fraud/risk department for 4 years. I am really interested in becoming a forensic accountant, and I would like to know what steps do I need to take to become a qualified forensic accountant, and can I use my experience in the fraud department as a Risk Analyst towards becoming a forensic accountant?
Thanks in advance.

    First of all you have to be a CPA to really get a solid career as a Forensic Accountant. One of my wife’s best friends is a forensic accountant so if you are really interested let us know and we can provide more details – my email is [email protected].

    Good luck

    first you need your designation in accounting. in Canada its a CA in the States is a CPA. This can take as little as a couple years if you already have a university business program under your belt. you must pass the CA/CPA exams and complete a designated number of auditing/tax/general hours in a accredited accouting firm. than you can take the forensic accouting exam. when you pass this you must complete another designated amount of hours in the field.

    yes, its long. but that’s why in Canada they START at about $100,000 (and thats a conservative number).
