Members of staff of the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) and its subsidiaries will benefit from a week-long Corporate Fraud Prevention and Detection course, which will be hosted at the PCJ’s auditorium from March 14-18, 2011.

The training will be conducted by President and CEO of the Florida-based Certified Information Security, Allen Keele, a Certified Internal Controls Risk Analyst, Business Continuity Manager and Fraud Control Manager.

According to Acting Group Managing Director of the PCJ, Nigel Logan, the training is a reflection of the importance that the PCJ attaches to corporate transparency and self-regulation and is in keeping with the organization’s commitment to the continued professional development of its staff.

“It is important that our staff receive this training so that they will be better equipped with the leading techniques to manage the risk of fraud. I also anticipate that it will help to strengthen our corporate governance framework and thus mitigate organizational risk”, he said.

The course will provide staff with a broad understanding of the field of fraud examination, from what fraud is, to how it is committed, detected and deterred. Staff will also examine in detail the most prevalent fraud schemes used by employees, owners, managers and executives. They will also be taught advanced interviewing techniques for investigating internal fraud and abuse.
