FDRBA Course Description

This seven-day course is designed for 24 frontline border officers who interact with the traveling public and examine travel and identity documents on a daily basis. The ability to recognize suspicious behaviors and indicators of inconsistencies in information provided by travelers, along with the ability to quickly examine travel documents to determine whether the documents presented are genuine, altered, or counterfeit, is critical to effective national security efforts. This course focuses on developing the skills that prepare the participants to rapidly detect characteristics of altered, counterfeit, or other fraudulent travel and identification documents, and to recognize behavioral cues that indicate a traveler could be traveling under false pretenses or be an imposter. Through a combination of lecture, group discussion, and practical exercises, participants are given opportunities to apply the skills and strategies by considering various scenarios and examining travel and identification documents for evidence of alteration or counterfeiting. Course topics include behavioral characteristics and meeting the traveler, examining travel documents, examination tools, current trends in the use of fraudulent travel documents, and community engagement and human rights. At the conclusion of the course, participants will be prepared to accurately assess the authenticity of a traveler and be able to clearly state the justification for identifying a traveler for secondary screening based on examination of documents and interaction with the traveler.
