Many professionals are required to conduct interviews in situations where the information obtained may be vital evidence in later proceedings.
Without training the information gained in these interviews may result in evidence being inadmissible, unreliable or without weight and therefore may adversely affect the fairness of any subsequent legal, disciplinary, tribunal hearings.
This Advanced Investigative Interviewing course will provide you with the key skills needed to effectively interview witnesses and injured parties, and enable you to maximise the evidence you gain during such interviews. Candidates will learn through a combination of classroom based presentations and discussions as well as practical interview sessions, and the training will also include the evaluation of interviews and the compilation of statements.
