Energy theft and vandalism on utility infrastructure continue to cost consumers billions of dollars every year the world over. While some measures have been put in place at various levels to minimise revenue loss and vandalism, both vices seem to be growing in extent and complexity. It is, therefore, a strategic imperative that organizations reinforce revenue protection programs as well as measures to curb vandalism.

The Advanced Revenue Protection Management and Prevention of Vandalism workshop provides proven tools to deal with customer fraud applicable to both large and small organisations as well as modern day strategies to protect infrastructure against acts of vandalism.

The course focuses on implementing appropriate revenue loss preventative programs against pilfering, theft, fraud, misallocation and misappropriation of revenue. The workshop is presented as a hands-on training for people with prior training and working experience in revenue protection and anti-vandalism campaigns.

At the end of the training programme, participants shall be able to:
• Design effective strategies to curb revenue loss;
• Gather evidence and conduct theft and fraud investigations;
• Recover lost revenues through effective meter testing and calibration;
• Implement community anti-vandalism campaigns to protect utility infrastructure.
