Associate Membership

IAI offers a special membership level for those who are active duty military, full-time students and full-time academia. The associate membership is the result of our partnership with Georgia Southern (GS) University and Don Berecz, CFI, CPA, CFE, and director of the Fraud Examination and Forensic Accounting Programs.

All investigators (students) in Berecz’s Forensic Interviews and Interrogation course become Associate Members of IAI and use the information and resources provided on the IAI website. The investigators also use the Wicklander-Zulawski text, “Practical Aspects of Interview and Interrogation.” During the course of the training (semester), investigators apply their knowledge in weekly mock interview assignments.

Faculty from other colleges and universities interested in developing their own course are welcome to contact Don Berecz at or (912) 478-0259.

This course is taught as part of a certificate program within the Georgia Southern School of Accountancy. To learn more, visit

Both the College of Business and the School of Accountancy at Georgia Southern are AACSB accredited.
