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.

Tammy Komanchuk, City of Medicine Hat

Basic Workplace Investigation Techniques & Report Writing Workshop is the best course I have attended on harassment/workplace investigations. This workshop focuses on teaching useful, practical techniques on conducting investigations and writing reports.

Clark Glassford, Transit Police BC

Basic Workplace Investigation Techniques and Report Writing Workshop is highly informative, entertaining and delivered in a first rate format. Siemens has a number of employees who have attended. Bar none, each employee has absolutely raved about it.

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.
