Financial Forensic Techniques Training Program (FFTTP)Up one level
This program is being combined with the Introduction to Fraud Investigation Training Program (IFITP) to create the new Economic Crime Investigation and Analysis (ECIA) training program. The March, 2013 program will be the last offering of the current program.
This two-week program is designed for financial investigators, investigative aides, prosecutors, analysts, and auditors who desire further training in various investigative techniques that are often utilized in financial investigations and prosecution of financial and fraud cases. An investigator’s success in financial investigations, especially those involving money laundering, often hinges on the ability to obtain, organize, analyze, and present evidence. These investigations often require an in-depth analysis to determine the ultimate source and disposition of monies that often take a circuitous route.
Successful completion of the FFTTP will enable students to: (1) identify various investigative techniques that may be used to identify the location of financial accounts and other assets; (2) identify evidentiary documents that may be used to prove the source and disposition of monies; (3) demonstrate how computer software may be used to organize, analyze, and present information; (4) identify various ways that an accounting system may be used to conceal the true nature of fraudulent transactions; (5) demonstrate how indirect methods may be used to identify illegal income; and (6) demonstrate how presentation software may be used to present investigative findings.
Length: The training program is eight days in duration, typically running from Tuesday of the first week until Thursday of the following week. Classroom time is approximately 64 hours over eight days.
