CEPOL Online Course 27/2021: Combating Card Fraud
07 June 2021 to 18 June 2021

The aim of the training activity is to develop skills on forensic evidence collection in the field of payment card fraud, namely the skimming and a special perspective of the card not present (CNP) fraud and ATM Malware related issues.

The learning strategy is focused to enhance the capacity of law enforcement officers to collect e-evidence on electronic payment fraud cases. The learning process highlights a learner-centred approach and will consist of:

  • Independent Learning: reviewing case studies, watching webinars and short videos, studying reading material (14 hours)
  • Contact Learning via online forums: forum discussion with other participants, exchange of good practices (6 hours)

The course will be delivered online over a period of two weeks, between 7-18 June 2021. While there is no specific time slot when participants shall be available for completing the course tasks, they should follow the course continuously. This is important as they will need to exchange their ideas with other participants virtually and complete small tasks/assignments then share the results of these tasks between each other and debate them collectively. It is important that the participants remain open-minded, active and will be willing to share their ideas/experience during the learning process. Completion of the course would require 2 hours investment / working day from the attending participant during the length of two weeks.

The course will be held entirely in English, therefore it is essential that nominated officials possess appropriate language skills (at least B2 level). The entire activity will be carried out online on CEPOL’s Law Enforcement Education Platform (LEEd), hence the physical presence of participants will not be required.


In case you are interested to attend, please contact your local CEPOL National Unit / CEPOL National Contact Point as soon as possible. Deadline for nominations by CEPOL National Units: 1 June 2021.

Selected participants have to be registered to CEPOL's online Law Enforcement Education platform LEEd where the online activity will take the place.

Target Audience: 

Law enforcement officers specialised in combating payment card fraud.

Virtual, accesible through CEPOL's eLearning platform LEEd (after approved registration)
