Further details regarding 2024 training delivery under the General Pre-accredited Training Delivery and Additional Digital and Employability program streams will be outlined in the 2024 ACFE Training Delivery Guidelines, and at the 2024 ACFE Training Delivery information sessions. 

This will include information regarding the phased incorporation of the Stronger by Design model in ACFE training delivery. 

Information sessions are expected to commence in late August 2023.
