Investigative Interviewing
Add powerful interview skills to your regulatory toolbox

Masterclass Series
Online | 6,7,8 February 2024

Sydney | 13,14,15 February 2024

Investigative interviewing is a very useful tool in the regulator’s toolbox and can gather large amounts of admissible evidence in a short space of time. However, it is often not used due to the fear of “getting it wrong” or misapplied. 

This masterclass will demystify the investigative interviewing process, introduce the science backed PEACE model of interviewing, and provide participants with practical tools that can be applied in their specific workplace. The masterclass will include opportunities for participants to practise the concepts discussed and powerful questioning techniques designed to elicit the flow of information from both witnesses and suspects.
