Founded by Peter Darby, PDA is a specialist counter fraud training and consultancy company that has gained a reputation for delivering quality products at affordable competitive prices.
Our most popular training courses are the PDA Accredited Counter Fraud Specialist (ACFS) and the PDA Accredited Counter Fraud Technician (ACFTech). We run a number of ‘open’ and ‘closed’ (customer specific) courses each year.
All our courses can be tailored to customers’ individual requirements. Our training provides students with an opportunity to assess their learning through the completion of a multiple choice question test. On successful completion students receive a certificate to evidence their Continuing Professional Development. The training material, learning experience and environment is fully evaluated using the Kirkpatrick Evaluation Model and results and findings are fed back to customers. Courses can be delivered to customers at any location both in the UK and abroad.
The PDA team are highly experienced counter fraud professionals with a variety of backgrounds having worked in the counter fraud investigation and intelligence gathering environments for central government, the police and special forces.
Together we are able to offer a broad range of products and services tailored to meet the counter fraud community’s specific needs. We are all qualified trainers who also hold Accredited Counter Fraud Trainer status, awarded by the University of Portsmouth Institute of Criminal Justice Studies Counter Fraud Professional Accreditation Board.
