UL offers e-Learning development services that can be used to create your custom product identification training course. Your custom course can be integrated into the International IP Crime Investigators College (IIPCIC) curriculum and made available to the college’s thousands of registered law enforcement learners around the world. The courses are free of charge for law enforcement, can be available in multiple languages and are accessible 24 hours a day.

International IP Crime Investigators College

An INTERPOL initiative in cooperation with UL empowering IP crime investigators through borderless education.

IIPCIC is a joint initiative of UL and INTERPOL, and the premier anti-counterfeiting training center for global law enforcement, regulatory authorities and private sector investigators. The core curriculum consists of 14 in-depth IP protection courses, which provide the critical knowledge needed to combat current and emerging threats from IP criminals.

IIPCIC has also developed and launched private sector e-learning modules that provide rights holders the opportunity to design and integrate their training materials, including product identification tools, within IIPCIC’s online curriculum. These specialized modules can be made available to the entire IIPCIC law enforcement community or restricted to a more limited audience.
