First class of counter-fraud professionals complete training

1 May 15

The first cohort of trainees has completed CIPFA’s Counter Fraud Specialist qualification.

The unique qualification, offered by the CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre, is designed to help boost the anti-fraud culture within public sector organisations.

Rachael Tiffen, head of the Counter Fraud Centre, said: ‘The positive feedback we received hammered home the fact that the CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre is offering services that ensure public sector workers are well-equipped in the fight against fraud and can now better understand the ever-changing landscape that threatens our services.

‘CIPFA has long argued that it is important for counter fraud work to be recognised as an intrinsic part of an organisation’s good governance.

‘This first cohort of professional counter fraud officers is now equipped to use the most up-to-date techniques, analytics and tools taught in new qualification to serve the public interest in the organisations they work for.’
