Recommended Prior Learning: 

For those who have a detailed understanding of Title IX and a moderate level of investigation experience, or have completed Investigator One.

Build upon your experience and refine your skillset with more nuanced techniques and strategies.

Civil Rights Investigator Two builds on the foundational investigation concepts from Investigator One and focuses on both refining interviewing techniques as well as post-interview tasks, including an introduction to investigation report composition, assessing credibility, and synthesizing information. Faculty will provide various opportunities to engage in exercises and case studies that allow for high levels of interaction, analysis, and the application of various civil rights investigation techniques. This training meets both the Title IX and VAWA Section 304 training requirements for participants, whether you are a full-time investigator or have investigation responsibilities in addition to other duties.
