Investigative Interviewing is a core skill in any investigation context. The highest standards need to be upheld when conducting interviews of persons suspected of financial crime to any level, and /or professional misconduct.  Equally, when interviewing witnesses and 'whistleblowers' to ensure objectivity and justice. Wrongful approaches to interviewing can and do cause serious implications!   

Therefore this course is especially designed to overcome common hurdles in interviewing and engage precisely with the attitudes, bluff tactics, and personal nuances of 'financial criminals'
