About This Course:
Get Advanced-Level Internal Investigation Training - Available In Both In-Person And Video Conference Formats

Our Advanced Internal Investigations Certificate Program is an advanced course on internal investigations.

It goes beyond the basic what, why, and how of conducting an internal investigation and focuses - through both lecture and dynamic classroom discussion - on complex legal situations involving Title VII, ADA, anti-discrimination, and other regulatory areas.

You also will learn best practices for investigating FMLA abuse, work-related injuries, workers' compensation fraud, conflict of interest, and how to work with external resources such as private investigators and law enforcement agencies. Additionally, this course provides contemporary tools, advanced techniques, and best practices for conducting effective investigations that minimize organizational liability and reinforce integrity in internal processes.

Often senior leadership turns to HR for advice and counsel when there are allegations of employee misconduct, but if you don't know how to handle these issues - both immediately and correctly - it could mean fines, penalties, and expensive litigation. This advanced course is the best investment in upgrading your skills while also minimizing organizational risk.

"The trainer was extremely knowledgeable and answered all questions completely. The exercises were also very valuable during the breakouts and forced us to put what we learned in action. I liked the small group of trainees, and it was interesting to hear the different perspectives each brought to the discussion."
