Training and Mentoring

Our courses and mentoring service are delivered by Accredited Counter Fraud Trainers.

Professional training

Where fraud or other financial crime has occurred it is essential that your organisation’s responders have a full understanding of the legislative and procedural requirements to carry out a financial crime investigation. Doing so will ensure that all possible sanctions remain available and provides the best chances to minimise loss and recover funds.

Our courses are delivered by Accredited Counter Fraud Trainers who have many years’ experience in delivering professional, university-accredited training. They have also had extensive operational experience enabling the theory to be applied to real-life situations.

Investigator mentoring

The role of investigator is a challenging one, with client or management expectations bringing pressure to bear, as well as having to deal with reluctant witnesses, hostile suspects and examining a plethora of data. Evidence may not be readily accessible and normal investigative sources may not have produced relevant material.

When faced with such circumstances investigators often find it hard to know where to start and from where support and information may be sourced, particularly if he or she is new to the role and is the sole resource investigative resource within their organisation.

Our Investigator Mentoring Service offers low-cost, confidential support from our team of accredited and experienced counter fraud specialists. We can talk through the problems being faced and offer possible solutions and strategies to deal with the difficulties being experienced.
