Online Course 05/2020: Money laundering 07 September 2020 to 30 September 2020

The overall objective of the training activity is to enhance knowledge on the application of financial investigative techniques in combating serious crime.

The activity will focus on sharing knowledge on money laundering typologies and demonstrating good national practices of the integration of financial investigations into various kind of serious crime – investigation – cases. A separate module will concentrate on the added value of cross-border cooperation instruments (Europol, Eurojust, CARIN, AMON and similar).

Topics will encompass the offshore challenge, cash collection networks, trade-based money laundering practices, money laundering techniques via virtual currencies or underground banking as well. Additionally through several examples it will be demonstrated how financial investigative approach contributes to serious crime investigations at operative level. The importance of suppressing crime enablers and the viable use of EU cooperation tools (e.g. Europol) will be also debated during the course.

The learning strategy is focused to enhance the capacity of European law enforcement officers to integrate financial investigations into general crime investigations. The learning process highlights a learner-centred approach and will consist of:

  • Independent Learning: reviewing case studies, watching webinars, listening short videos (podcasts), studying reading material – 21 hours
  • Contact Learning via online forums: forum discussion with other participants, exchange of good practice – 5 hours
  • Experiential Learning: a simulated case exercise is provided in the end of the activity which needs to be analysed by participants – 4 hours

The course will be delivered over a period of 3.5 weeks. Participants are expected to study around 1.5 hour per working day during this period in order to be able to complete the activity (in total 30 training hours). While there is no specific time slot when participants shall be available for completing the course tasks, they should follow the course continuously on a daily basis. This is important as the attendants will need to cooperate with other participants virtually and complete small tasks/assignments then share the results of these tasks between each other and debate them collectively.

No special experience is required from participants but it is important that they'll remain open-minded, active and will be willing to share their ideas/experience during the learning process.

The entire activity will be carried out online hence the physical presence of participants will not be required.The course will be held entirely in English, therefore it is essential that nominated officials possess appropriate language skills.


Nomination:
