The Advanced Inspector Training Course focuses on issues and techniques for the more senior inspector to help enhance and improve their inspection techniques and results. This course does not focus on any specific media but covers subjects applicable to inspections in all media. The course is intended to provide additional tools to obtain information before, during and after an inspection. The course will present “best practices” for conducting inspections and give the students an opportunity to discuss how these “best practices” apply or not to their own inspections. Each class will have the opportunity to discuss and evaluate specific issues or areas of interest to them.
The course includes lectures, discussions, exercises, and role playing. Day one is mainly lecture and discussion with some minor role-play. Day two includes lectures and discussion and ends with a major inspection exercise to allow the student to apply the previous lessons. Day 3 is a review of the exercise followed by additional lecture and discussion on the criminal investigation program and the most advanced inspection techniques.
