Refine, Upskill And Hone Your Investigation Skills

Find out what matters most from receiving a complaint to final outcomes

This 3-day workshop has been designed exclusively for the Public Sector on Investigation skills.

If you are in the business of regulatory compliance - you know like we know sometimes talking - educating and persuading stops. There are times when you need to pull on the statutory powers of council to get stuff done. At best it's a strong instruction that is enforceable at worst we end up in court. Let rick teach you what you have to do right from the start to make sure it doesn't fall over in the court room

It addresses all the conventional issues that confront the investigator and takes participants on a chronological journey from the receiving of the complaint through to the presentation of evidence in a court of law. Recognising that most matters are finalised without the need for prosecution, alternative compliance choices are also examined.

This program is necessary for all compliance investigators including:

Compliance unit managers and supervisors, authorised persons, enforcement officers, buildinginspectors, monitoring officers, animal control officers, environmental officers, health inspectors and more.
