Public training courses
If you have less than 4 delegates to train, training in-house becomes non-efficient. CMP’s public courses offer an excellent alternative for those who want to train as mediators and investigators. Endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) our programmes are interactive, strong on practical exercises and focused feedback and run by specialists with many years of experience under their belts.
Very good trainer who ran the investigation training well with good ‘real life’ examples to support the theory. The process and policy was very useful. I really enjoyed the course.
It was great to have such an experienced investigaton skills trainer, with deeper insight into people’s motivations and responses, and how to skilfully navigate these in order to elicit the information necessary to come to a reasoned judgment. We picked up lots of great tips about how to ensure an investigation’s terms of reference are really clear, and how to stay on track and not become diverted by other agendas.
Relaxed, inclusive, well balanced with respect to information and hands on exercises, and the trainer was not patronising!
CMP provided a great facilitator: very articulate and patient, who created opportunities for discussion on issues that I was unsure of.
The CMP Professional Workplace Investigation skills was well led by Tim, an extremely knowledgeable and experienced trainer. His approach to the subject matter was both legalistic and yet had the ‘human’ touch. The course and subsequent ILM Endorsement is valuable to our business in providing us the skills to carry out independent investigation on behalf of our HR Team, and allowing them to manage any subsequent actions arising from the investigation.
The investigation training was informative and interactive, with excellent course material. I particularly liked the energy and expertise of the trainer who shared his experiences.
CMP developed a serious incident investigation programme that was just right for the needs of the group. We would recommend CMP to any organisation wanting to develop the skills and professionalism of their investigators. Our training was been a very positive experience, and we are confident it has helped us to speed up and professionalise our approach to investigating serious incidents. Not only have our investigators gained in confidence and skills, but our investigations are already moving more quickly and our processes have been streamlined following input from the trainers.
CMP is a very good company to do business with and I would definitely recommend them. I was very happy with the service offered, the investigation training and the follow-up support. Our organisational objectives were clearly met by CMP’s involvement and I believe the training has provided the foundation for success.
The trainer was very clear and professional. Having conducted many investigations, this is the first time I have received investigation training. Long overdue!
