Basic Workplace Investigation Techniques was one of the best courses I have taken.  The information provided was relevant, useful and extremely interesting.  The use of actors for the role play made it feel like you were dealing with a real investigation.

Excellent presentation! The information was presented in a clear and organized fashion. The examples and scenarios brought the information to life. Parisa provided concrete information which helps me to ensure that my policies are sound.

Not only was the course design top notch, Cory was just tremendous as our learning leader. I have been in a lot of training courses and seen a lot of facilitator styles, and Cory is right up there with the best of the best for me.

Janice and Christine are both great presenters! I learned a lot of new information and the role playing was one of the most effective I have participated in. Very realistic.
