Becker Introduces Crime-Themed CPE Courses in Partnership with Red Flag Mania


Becker, a global leader in accounting exam prep and professional education, announced today the introduction of crime-themed continuing professional education (CPE) courses in partnership with Red Flag Mania. Becker's new immersive, interactive educational and training program focused on business and accounting will go live in June 2024.

"Immersive whodunit e-learning like this will revolutionize the educational landscape in accounting," said Ed Clark, President of Becker, a Colibri Group company. "As part of our commitment to remain the market leader in accounting education, we are thrilled to offer individual gamified CPE courses to make earning CPE credit fun for working professionals, all made possible through our strategic collaboration with Red Flag Mania."

Research shows that gamification significantly enhances student engagement and academic performance, leading to higher success rates and retention compared to traditional and online methods. Becker's new innovative e-learning solution combines film, theory, and "whodunit" fun to empower learners to use data to solve complex problems and gain new skills.

"Combining Red Flag Mania's dynamic and interactive learning modules with Becker's acclaimed expertise in accounting education is a perfect match," said Kelly Richmond Pope, Ph.D., CPA, Co-founder of Red Flag Mania. "This alliance will create cutting-edge educational offerigs that promise to deliver exceptional, real-world learning experiences, cementing both entities' dedication to nurturing and empowering professionals."



Becker's new immersive CPE experience takes place in a world of true crime, mystery and corporate coverups as participants proactively identify and prevent financial crimes. Working professionals explore topics in ethics, audits, fraud, tax and business, all while earning CPEs credits. The new gamified learning experience will become part of Becker's course portfolio starting in June. Workshop events will run through the end of 2024.
