The Center’s Applied Brand Protection Training Program is currently offered 100% online through self-guided courses or instructor-led courses.


The trainings will present information in a way that assumes participants have already developed a basic foundation in the topical area, which will allow for in-depth coverage of each of the topics. Utilizing a case study format, participants can readily apply lessons to real world counterfeiting/brand protection issues and will develop an advanced level of knowledge of product counterfeiting and brand protection topics.

"I learned so much new material and reinforced so much of what I already knew or even suspected intuitively and it was totally worth the effort. The discussion board was excellent and being able to relate my background(s) to the discussions was also very validating for me as far as building my own confidence that I can do this."

"It was helpful to hear of the challenges other brand protection professionals were facing. It was also very helpful to have the weekly calls facilitated by Jay- he engaged each of us on the call and was a great facilitator/mediator for the discussions. Another value for me was the academic research behind the process of building successful teams. This helped validate many of our strategies and processes. I appreciate the time and attention that Jay and his team put into the content, organization, and presentation of this course."

"The content will be applied across all of the various teams that I am on and/or lead, such as Global Security, Crisis Management, and Supply Chain Leadership Council. The content helped me better understand opportunities for growth of our brand protection team and how I can influence our brand protection leadership and improve interaction with internal and external partners."
