Over the past four years the Credentialing Committee has worked diligently to refine the CLFC application and recertification process with the goal of creating a credential that helps enhance the certificant's recognition and credibility as an educated and committed forensic consultant. The CFLC credential promotes a greater level of confidence for clients and employers while positioning the credential holder ahead of fellow experts in the same discipline without the credential. Your dedication, through FEWA involvement and continuing education, also shows your commitment to and passion for improvement in forensic consulting--all increasing your opportunities for leads, referrals and potential assignments.
In response to the increasing demand from the greater legal community, an examination will now be a required component for CFLC applicants and current CFLCs seeking recertification starting November 1, 2018. Current CFLC Certificants with certifications expiring on December 31, 2018 are required to submit their recertification application to the FEWA National Office by the end of the year. The CFLC Recertification requirements are listed below:

A passing score of at least 70% is required to proceed with the CFLC recertification application process. The exam can be taken an indefinite number of times until the required passing score is achieved.
