Founder, CFE Guru

My name is Narmin Multani. As the founder of CFE Guru, I’m going to help you prepare for the CFE exam so that you can achieve the profession of your dreams using the CFE Guru Self-Study System.

With over 14 years in the field, I have direct experience teaching, marking and preparing future CPAs for the most important exam of their career.

I have taught over 6,000 accounting students across Canada, consulted for the big four accounting firms, and lectured at the top educational institutions in Canada. I have been on all sides of the desk — as an exam student, a lecturer and a professional UFE/CFE marker. I have taught with CPA Ontario, authored PEP cases for CPA Quebec, marked the national CPA exam and prepared the PAR reports for unsuccessful candidates for CPA Canada. All this has allowed me to MASTER the CFE exam.

I know the precise steps you need to prepare for, and pass the exam and I share this exact knowledge with you in the CFE Guru Self-Study System.

After completing your Capstones and this unique system, you won’t need any additional coaching or guidance to pass the CFE.

What Makes the CFE Guru Self Study System SO different?

There’s no other system like this on the market. It covers ALL aspects of the exam and what is required to succeed — even areas that are often overlooked, such as stress management and what to do weeks and days leading up to the CFE: 

  • Focus on technical aspects, how to study, what to study and the importance of technical and how to tackle it when it comes up. 
  • Learn how to use formats to make your response more efficient and complete in a timely manner.
  • Emphasis on time management and how to complete CFE cases within the allocated time.
  • Detailed demonstration on how to read and outline a case from cradle to grave. Not just telling you what to do, but teaching you HOW to do it.
  • All content is carefully curated — we filtered out all the unnecessary fluff so that you learn what you need to know, while maximizing your study time.

“I hadn’t touched a single textbook or material since finishing my prerequisite courses in 2014. When I first approached Narmin in the middle of 2019, I was very nervous about my ability to clear the September 2019 CFE.

But to my delight upon joining and commencing her course my fears and stress started to go away. She has the gift of being able to explain the cases, the exams from your point of view as a student. Deciding to enrol in her CFE Prep course was the best decision I made and I guarantee anyone who trusts her and signs up for her course will be highly rewarded :)”
