SOFE Testing Update

New CFE2 Test on Enterprise Risk Management Effective July 1, 2015: SOFE announces the development of a new CFE 2 test on Enterprise Risk Management to align the designation with the NAIC Risk Focused Examination Process. The new test will be offered through SOFE’s online testing program beginning July 1. Important details and deadlines for the transition to the new CFE2 test can be found at the Testing tab.

New AES Proficiency Test: The SOFE AES Committee has developed an AES Proficiency Test to replace the test previously hosted by NAIC. The test closely covers the processes outlined in the Financial Examiners’ Handbook relating to risk focused IT review and is offered through SOFE’s online testing system. For more information, please review the AES requirements here.

All SOFE testing is offered through the SOFE testing website at Test.com where the AFE, CFE and AES tests are offered as well as the CRE Reading Program tests. For information on SOFE testing and fees, go to the Testing tab above.
