    Although originally designed for, and extensively used by, DMV staff across the nation, these courses are invaluable to organizations that come into contact with driver’s licenses, identification credentials or secure documents of any kind. The entire course suite or a package of course subsets can be delivered to students efficiently within a variety of training strategies.

    Level I

    This suite of courses introduces the basic techniques of fraudulent document recognition that staff can employ without the need for expensive forensic tools. By providing in-depth examples and explanations of the types of security features in circulation today, and most importantly, how to identify them, the courses provide the tools needed to flag documents for review that may have otherwise been accepted at face value as genuine.

    Because the courses include printable job aids and “quick tips” covering essential concepts and document features, staff will always be armed with the fraud detection tools they need. FDR Level I's courses range from 30-45 minutes each (including a knowledge assessment at the end of each course). Organizations may deliver the suite as a whole or choose to purchase/offer only those courses that are of highest priority/interest.

    Level II

    Level II is a natural progression of Level I's concepts in order to bring document examination to the next level. The courseware introduces covert security features and develops student skills in the use of magnification, auxiliary lighting and UV tools.

    Although covert features are presented generically (a review of detailed covert features of specific documents is NOT provided), the course will provide a solid understanding of how to begin a second-level review in today's fraud environment. With this foundation, students can effectively engage with local fraud experts and document issuers in detailed reviews of documents important to their specific job duties.
