2016 Training Institute for Workplace Investigators

May 2-6, 2016 ♦ Ontario, Canada

An intensive, five-day course
leading to a Certificate of Completion!

In keeping with our mission to promote and enhance the quality of impartial workplace investigations, in 2016 we are presenting two sessions of our national-level, intensive Training Institute for Workplace Investigators. Upon completion of this challenging program, AWI will certify that the participant has completed what is becoming the gold standard for training in our industry. Class size will be limited so every participant will have personalized, hands-on training from the Institute’s experienced faculty.

We have priced this Institute to make it affordable to our members and other workplace investigators. Tuition includes continental breakfast, lunch, breaks, and the Thursday banquet.
