Education Committee

A generation has passed since the founding of IASIU in 1984. Then, as now, the leaders of our organization recognized the importance of providing quality training for our members.

The first training seminar was held November 6-8, 1985, at the Hyatt Crystal City, Arlington, VA. It was co-hosted by the National Association of Special Investigation Units – as IASIU was then known – and the American Society of Industrial Security (ASIS, known as ASIS International since 1990).

Many of the insurance fraud related crimes our early members experienced, our investigators still see today – application misrepresentation, auto theft, arson, falsified receipts, billing for services not rendered, up coding, and staged accident rings. It is not so much the “what” that has changed but the “how.” Technology has changed significantly during the last 30 years, allowing us to gather, evaluate and act on information in greater volumes and speed than our predecessors ever dreamed possible. Unfortunately, those who commit insurance fraud adapt quickly to change and rapidly modify their behavior and actions, allowing them to continue to ply their trade.

As we move into the future, our training must remain cutting edge; we must find ways to quickly adapt to technological changes and to get the knowledge and techniques out to our members in real time. We need your help to accomplish this by being active in your local chapters and by sharing your knowledge and experience with your colleagues.
