The Investigation of Transnational and Organized Intellectual Property (IP) Crime.
The IIPCIC Introductory Curriculum topics were identified and developed by a transnational committee of renowned subject matter experts (SMEs). The topics were recognized as the key building blocks necessary to form a sound basis of knowledge that will prepare law enforcement and other partners to effectively fight IP crime on an international level.
The Introductory Curriculum training modules have been developed for investigators who want to learn more about IP crime and who would like to undertake these types of cases. Those who successfully complete this level will have a greater understanding of IP crime and will be able to identify typical IP crime cases and initiate actions to undertake counterfeiting and piracy investigations.
This curriculum is currently available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic and Mandarin. Students must complete each module and pass the accompanying quiz with a score of 80% or better to complete the training and receive their downloadable certificate.
On successful completion of the IIPCIC Introductory Level Curriculum, students will be eligible to download and print an IIPCIC Certificate endorsed by INTERPOL certifying they have “successfully completed an introductory course of professional studies on the investigation of transnational and organized intellectual property (IP) crime”. The certificate course, recognized by INTERPOL, provides IP crime professionals with evidence of specialist awareness and learning on the subject of transnational organized IP crime.
It is a great course and I literally cannot recommend it highly enough to my colleagues.
