Our Operations Manager, Mark Filby, has spoken with the Managing Director, Mr Rene van Eert of the ID Centre based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands to understand more about their work
MF: Who would be your typical client?
Rene: We work closely together with national and international id-chain partners in order to be able to update our curricula constantly. During this, more than 30 years lasting cooperation, IDcentre has been proven to be a trustworthy partner regarding ethics and protocol.
Frontex has provided IDcentre with a special status as “Partnership Academy”, delivering training and courses for border guards of all EU-member states and beyond.
In a broader context, IDcentre offers her service also to the United Nations, Europol, IOM, ICMPD, ECB and other key stakeholders.
MF: Do you work with industry solution providers?
Rene: Besides the cooperation with law enforcement, IDcentre has a vast network in the identity chain suppliers’ network as for example Security Foiling Limited.
Information disclosure of the ongoing, fast evolution in security features regarding secured printed documents and related production processes is crucial for those who are involved in combatting identity and document fraud.
Security feature, equipment suppliers and security printers are high valued partners.
MF: What about your trainers and teachers, what is their background?
