Note Taking & Testimony: This course covers a broad range of note taking issues critical to successful investigations. It also provides training on proper approaches for presenting testimony in court and "surviving cross-examination". Subject to time constraints, a mock court can be included to allow students to testify and undergo cross-examination on notes they authored earlier in the course.

Expert Opinion Testimony: This subject is an "add-on" to the Note Taking & Testimony course described above. It is designed for witnesses who may be required to give expert opinion evidence in trials or other judicial proceedings.

Rules of Evidence: This course familiarizes students with basic but important rules of evidence and exceptions to the general rules of evidence.

Basic Legal Issues: Students are introduced to fundamentals of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and other important common-law and statutory legal issues.

Scene Examination: This course enables students to carry out a basic scene examination. It is designed for members of agencies that do not have access to formally trained forensic personnel.

Report Writing Made Easy: Many competent investigators struggle with "transferring the case facts onto paper". This course provides an easy-to-follow approach to authoring clear, complete and understandable investigative reports.

Witness Statements: Prosecutions very frequently rely on witnesses to provide observations and other evidence that occurred before the arrival of the investigator. Good witness statements are necessary to provide an aide memoir for potential witnesses. They are also a useful tool for pinning down any witness who might consider recanting or falsely changing his/her account at a later time.

Investigating Workplace Incidents: This course is designed for the less experienced manager or other person who may be tasked with the investigation of an in-house workplace incident such as sexual or racial harassment.

Verifying Information in Hiring Interviews: This interviewing course is to assist persons in evaluating information received from a job applicant during hiring interviews.

Search Warrant Preparation: This intensive course prepares students for the challenging and complex process of authoring search warrants.



Pre-Employment Interview

A pre-employment interview is a cost effective method used to obtain the required information needed to make an educated hiring decision or determine the suitability of a candidate or applicant for a specific position.  Our plan consists of 5 steps:  determine the interview team, determine job qualifications, determine interview questions, determine how responses will be evaluated, and train the interviewers.


Types of Interviews

  1. Unstructured/Informal – Consisting of a loose set of questions, which may vary from interview to interview.
  2. Structured – Consisting of a specific series of questions designed to obtain meaningful information about a candidate’s ability to perform the job.
  3. Performance Based – Specific to a vacancy, organization idiosyncrasies or challenges, and work culture.

Having an interview process in place can save time and money.  It can help prevent legal ramifications resulting from poor or non-existent hiring processes.Toronto Polygraph link
