Training

  1. The Central Means of Payment Antifraud Office (UCAMP) has been carrying out intense training since 2002, as part of the system for protecting the euro both at a national and EU level. This activity originated also as a result of the opportunities offered by the EU “PERICLES” programme set up by EU Council Decision of 17 December 2001. The training is addressed to anyone who may be dealing with counterfeiting at a professional level (police, judges, financial intermediaries, etc.). Within the framework of the EU PERICLES programme, the UCAMP's training initiatives must respect three fundamental principles:

    • the principle of transnationality (providing for the joint participation of one or more Member States);
    • the pluridisciplinary principle (training organized so as to be able to cover multiple aspects of euro counterfeiting);
    • the principle of subsidiarity (training related to that already done in the proposing country).

    In line with the aforementioned principles, UCAMP developed an original training model, which has met with success in recent years, including the initiatives abroad (and in particular, international seminars held in Libya and Turkey). With this model, UCAMP is able to provide advanced training, and applications with respect to the police, judges, and financial intermediaries.
     
  2. In Italy, UCAMP provides technical training to all representatives of accredited reporting entities, with regard to the SIRFE System (Euro) and the SIPAF System (payment cards); the training is designed to familiarise the trainees with the system functions, illustrate the systems' new aspects and potential, and through the constant dynamic exchange of opinions, to make the systems increasingly accessible. Training also includes UCAMP's supply of specialist material (circulars, user manuals, etc.) to users of the systems operated by UCAMP; such material is made available on the respective applications, or if provided, on the institutional site of the Department of the Treasury. Training is also offered via events organised by local government, chambers of commerce, and universities, on the basis of a UCAMP programme entitled “Euro, payment cards, identity theft and the Internet: how to defend yourself from fraud”.

    The seminars are addressed to anyone who is professionally involved in managing cash and/or in the payment-card issuing and acceptance circuit, for the purpose of familiarising the trainees with both legislative initiatives aimed at reinforcing security in the payments and consumer credit businesses, and the status of the fight against fraud in general. Finally, UCAMP participates in training and disclosure meetings organised by other entities operating in the sector, including, for example, the Bank of Italy or the Italian Banking Association (ABI), contributing to the organisation of specific workshops.
