The course is based on theoretical training sessions given by renowned national and international speakers and trainers whose recognised professional performance reflects the excellence of the teaching-pedagogical environment, belonging to Europol, OLAF, The European Public Prosecutor's Office, Eurojust, the Portuguese Judiciary Police, the Portuguese Tributary and Customs Authority, Philip Morris International, Japan Tobbaco International and from Member States, such as Spain, Hungary, Lithuania and Poland.

These sessions will be materialised both in the theoretical and in the practical component through the application of practical exercises and the approach to several case studies. This will allow the sharing of acquired knowledge and experiences, thus contributing to the formalisation of a unified vision in figthing excise fraud in the European Union.
