I have a friend who is now an IRS special agent and it tickles me to know he carries a gun and goes on raids

The difference is the primary weapon: gun vs. calculator.

Forensic accountants support agents at the FBI working on white collar crime or other crimes where the case has a financial element.

IRS Special Agents work on cases involving suspected tax fraud/evasion.

How much cash do I need to save up to make this realistically affordable?

For those who have obtained the CFF certification:
I was asked to put together a working plan to obtain my CFF credential. I’m aware of the 2 certificate program (Core and Specialized) through the AICPA that will lead to the CFF. Does anyone have experience in how long it would take to complete the certificates and if there are other necessary or helpful study materials that would be useful? For background, I’m 6 months into working at this firm and have touched a variety of cases.
