Beating Fraud Together
Students can either attend our advertised courses, or if you have a number of staff requiring training, a more convenient and less time consuming solution is for us to come to you. In this way you will save on staff travel, subsistence and accommodation costs.
Please take time to look through our site to find out more about us and the services we have to offer. If you require more information or you can’t find what you are looking for then please contact us. We believe we are able to meet any counter fraud training or consultancy requirement you may have and are confident we can provide the most cost effective solution that will make a real difference.
As well as our very popular training courses, PDA also offer a counter fraud consultancy which can, for example, range from conducting a comprehensive review of an organisations counter fraud investigation capability to advice on developing a fraud strategy or writing and producing counter fraud guides and codes.
Our services are offered to all organisations, large or small, public or private. Whether your investigations are focused on internal fraud, external fraud or both, we will work in partnership with you to turn aspirations into workable cost effective solutions, providing a step change in skills, knowledge and working practices. Our services are fully evaluated using the Kirkpatrick Model and results and findings are fed back to customers.
