There are two main ways that a company can protect itself against fraud: putting preventive measures in place and having a comprehensive fraud detection programme.

This course gives you everything you need to know about fraud detection, including practical tips you can put into practice at your place of work, regardless of your specific industry.

Fundamental Concepts Fraud Course

While fraud is a common crime, the fundamental concepts behind it are less understood. This is to the detriment of many organisations, as the existence of fraud can be incredibly destructive.

This course goes over the important elements you need to know about fraud to stay safe, including the categories of fraud, the points at which fraud is likely to occur, and what to do if you suspect it is happening at your company.

Global Anti-Bribery Course

Another unethical and illegal business practice that is unfortunately common is bribery. While there are legal consequences for those engaged in this practice, they can only work if others in the business world understand the rules and policies relating to this crime.

This course reviews global anti-bribery practices and legislation in detail, giving you the tools you need to spot warning signs and continue running an ethical company.

Human Element of Fraud Course

Organisations can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more, on fraud detection and prevention. However, one of the most successful strategies is also the least expensive: examining the human element.

This course reviews the possible motives for fraud, while also talking about how to identify fraudulent activity by paying close attention to human behaviour.

ID Theft Course

Identity theft is a shockingly common crime – one that can impact you years after the fact. Not only can it destroy your credit, becoming a victim can even make it harder to land your dream job or get an amazing apartment.

Understanding the steps you should take to protect yourself as well as the signs that may mean you have been victimised are just two of the key topics covered by this course.

Tamas Fekete

Wow, a really helpful course, and a great way to get a portfolio of 'faces' that will enhance my repertoire. The course was so useful in highlighting important things to think about and also give a background into the history of facial art. I enjoyed the chapters and the ability to download or re -visit the chapters any time is a great bonus. Personally, for me, I wanted to have a recognizable and quantifiable certification that I can let potential customers see, and check, so they can feel confident I am a qualified and responsible face painter. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking about furthering their interest in face painting.

Felicity Sayers

As a PA of a very fast moving company, having many situations thrown at me day to day, I decided to take the Level 3 Admin & PA Diploma course to ensure I was up to scratch within my job role. Although I knew a lot of what was within the course, there were many topics I hadn’t had to use before but since had to.

I found the course very easy to understand and relate to. It was interesting and factual which is brilliant for anyone that would like to improve their PA skills or for someone starting out as a PA.

I enjoyed the course and feel I have bettered myself and my job role as a PA

It was great, lots of knowledge and able to learn at my own pace was fantastic, and that I have access to it after completing exam is great too!

I am excited to start further learning and will likely try another course provided from this website! Exam was easy and straight forward, and provided you with the questions you did not get correct so that you are able to further study.

I have recommended this site to friends and family, and will continue learning! Thank you so much New Skills Academy! You are an amazing site and I am grateful!

My course was the Pet Sitting and Dog Walking course. It is quite an interesting course! It was perfect to learn, and this what I was looking for.

Easy and clear to understand with many helpful pictures, very helpful extra information, very informative. I really enjoyed studying this course. For me it was fun ? I studied when I have had time, which is great for me in addition to my current job.

I hope I can start soon my new career with my newly learned skills. I am so excited. Fully accredited course which is important for me. I will definitely recommend New Skills Academy!

Tamas Fekete

Wow, a really helpful course, and a great way to get a portfolio of 'faces' that will enhance my repertoire. The course was so useful in highlighting important things to think about and also give a background into the history of facial art. I enjoyed the chapters and the ability to download or re -visit the chapters any time is a great bonus. Personally, for me, I wanted to have a recognizable and quantifiable certification that I can let potential customers see, and check, so they can feel confident I am a qualified and responsible face painter. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking about furthering their interest in face painting.

Felicity Sayers

My dream has come true. Eventually I found this online course after searching for years in my area where none of the colleges provided it and it is necessary to get my dream job.

I got an incredible discount and what I like the best I got a lifetime access to the course, so there is no rush and I can revisit any time to revise as well.

Excellent support and immediate response to emails, I am very pleased. The course material is written in an easily understandable way, no hidden fees and mobile friendly so I can learn anywhere.
