Counter Terrorist Financing, Class 3: The global CFT/CTF enterprise can be enhanced if public and private sector capacities are improved with synchronized teaching/learning initiatives. In a recent statement, the G20 said building private and public CFT/CTF capacities were indeed a priority (July, 2017). Synchronization across the various CFT/CTF communities can greatly enhance synergy. Synergy refers to the operational end of the international CFT/CTF enterprise, or the collaborative and cooperative functional or applied field. Sync refers to the integration of quality control and quality assurance mechanisms into doctrinal development, teaching/learning and assessment processes; academic programs and institutions, information sharing platforms, as well as feedback loops connected with the CFT/CTF enterprise. This would be a timely endeavor.
Or enterprise wide synchronization can be improved with the integration of quality control and quality assurance mechanisms into a single state-of-the-art CFT/CTF course ware set and instructional platform. This course is based on the latter premise. Feed your brain my friend, its hungry!
