The ultimate and practical investigation course for anyone who is involved in Fraud Investigations.
This training week will provide the tools necessary to conduct and manage internal investigations into fraud and corruption and create a report to support future action, including legal action. You will learn how to perform all stages of a fraud investigation, including the planning, examining documents, looking for and collating the evidence, interviewing informants, witnesses, and potential suspects and preparing for litigation or a criminal complaint. Practical and realistic case exercises will be used throughout. Taking a holistic perspective, this course empowers auditors and risk-professionals working in an organisation to develop anti-fraud and corruption programs, find fraud and corruption early, work in teams and, most importantly, become self-reliant.
