Educational Efforts The Foundation believes that the cornerstone to dealing with the growing problem of counterfeit goods is education. Through training seminars, informational presentations, videos and written materials, the Foundation provides ongoing assistance to law enforcement groups wishing to know more about the issues and to address it in their own jurisdictions. The Foundation’s educational mission is supported, in part, by participating companies which provide training for enforcement personnel. Full day, half day and trade fair format sessions are available at no cost to Federal, State and Local agencies and their officers. The IACC Foundation can also provide speakers for conferences, events or panels to discuss issues concerning product counterfeiting issues.
