This is a well structured and very relevant training course that does just that—enabling people to conduct fair and effective investigations into allegations of misconduct.”

WHAT YOU ACHIEVE

As an investigator, or someone accountable for organisational human risk factor investigations, this course will give you:

The core skills and confidence to carry out, or oversee, objective and professional investigations into staff and organisational misconduct.

The ability to know when an investigation should be escalated because you don’t have the right skills or experience.

The EFFECTIVE WORKPLACE INVESTIGATIONS PROGRAM is developed and delivered by experienced and respected investigators from UN, INGO and policing backgrounds.

This is a highly practical course that uses a realistic case scenario throughout the program to illustrate and reinforce the theory. It also includes extensive study and practice of interviewing techniques, with numerous practical exercises.

“While every case is obviously different, essentially the methods that any professional investigator will use are pretty much the same regardless of what they’re dealing with and in our experience, these can be taught very effectively. This course is designed for people who don’t come from a professional investigative background. Our aim is to give you a solid grounding in the basic methods and skills you need to conduct sound workplace investigations.”
