The curriculum during the 8:30 am to 4:30 pm seminar will provide law
enforcement attendees from across the country with the fundamental investigative
techniques, resources, knowledge and understanding to respond effectively to the
complex challenges encountered during the investigation of crimes related to counterfeit
coinage and precious metals as well as other numismatic and related financial crimes,
To enhance the educational experience, attendees will be given hands-on
training and be introduced to the numismatic profession and collecting community by
having the opportunity to tour the bourse floor and bring back questions to the
classroom setting, he added.
The seminar is open only to law enforcement personnel. Tuition is free and
includes all training materials and a certificate of completion.
