Introduction to CFE Module

Welcome to the Introduction to CFE FSA Module home page! Please review all of the information and the links provided below.

The Introduction to CFE FSA module is an e–Learning module where you acquire and use knowledge that is distributed and facilitated electronically. The electronic e–Learning facility will also provide information regarding required text readings and other non–computer–based activities.

The purpose of the Introduction to CFE module is to provide you with an understanding and skills to evaluate a business through its strategy, financial statements, and the level of risk capital that it may need to hold. You will also gain familiarity with authoritative resources that will facilitate future reading, reference, and practice should that be needed for your work.


Candidates have flexibility in the order in which they complete the requirements. However, the SOA has established a recommended order for each fellowship track. These recommendations are effective for all exams and modules completed after July 1, 2011. Candidates should be aware that an examination/module may assume familiarity with material that is covered in any requirement that is recommended to come before that examination or module.
