Investigative interviewing methodologies like you have never experienced before

This is an exciting four-week online course, where you will learn how to conduct successful investigative interviews with effective new concepts to acquire confessions from the guilty. We are taking over 25 years of hands-on experience conducting investigative interviews and sharing with you our insights into what contributes to their success and failures.

Students will continue to build upon their interviewing techniques that have previously been learned, identify signs of deception, develop new rationalizations, build rapport and obtain an admission of guilt (or eliminate them as a person of interest). Lastly, we will explore what is needed for a clean separation of employment and/or prosecution.
