Special Investigations Academy



Event Information

PDF includes agenda, course descriptions and more event details.

The annual Special Investigations Academy teaches investigative techniques required for professional fraud investigators and serves as an excellent forum to network and develop productive relationships with dozens of anti-fraud professionals. Highly experienced and knowledgeable NICB employees, law enforcement agents and SIU industry experts instruct the courses.

Eligibility is restricted to the direct (not contracted) employees of member companies. Additionally, government agencies and law enforcement are eligible to attend the academy on a space available basis if their current assignment involves the investigation of insurance crime.

A final exam will be administered after the last class on Thursday afternoon. The test questions will only focus on the General Session classes that all participants attend. Attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion.

WE REQUEST ALL REGISTRATIONS BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN APRIL 6, 2018. All registrants will receive a confirmation letter shortly after submitting their registration for this event.
