From 15th to 26th October an E-Doc Masterclass course was conducted in Eindhoven, the Netherlands for 9 participants from the main Lebanese border agencies (LAF, ISF, GS, and LCA). Organised and funded by the Netherlands Assistance to Lebanese Border Agencies project and delivered by IDcentre, a Frontex partnership academy, this was the first module of an expert-level document security course aligned to, and carrying certification for, EU and Frontex standards.

Normally only available to the highest levels of EU document examiners, participants received training on numerous document security-related topics such as digital security design, bio-metric advances, document reverse engineering and new trends and techniques in forgery. All participants successfully graduated the course allowing them to proceed to subsequent restricted modules and increasingly take their rightful place alongside their EU expert counterparts.
