Investigative Interviewing - overview

Many professionals are required to conduct interviews in situations where the information obtained may be vital evidence in later proceedings.

Failure to conduct these interviews properly may result in evidence being inadmissible, unreliable or without weight. It may adversely affect the fairness of any subsequent legal hearing.

This Investigative Interviewing course will provide you with the key skills to interview witnesses, obtain witness statements and interview suspects effectively and to best-practice standards, enabling you to maximise the evidence you gain during such interviews.

The Investigative Interviewing training course can count towards the 8-day nationally recognised qualification - the Advanced Professional Certificate In Investigative Practice - or towards the 2-day Advanced Award in Investigative Interviewing.

Due to VAT regulations, if you are booking outside the UK, please contact the office.
