“ What our students are saying… ”
“I have really enjoyed all four modules. I have covered some of the material before, however, it was really useful to reinforce my learning and also learn new legislation and practice. Peter is very informative having worked in fraud for many years, which added to the learning. Module 4 cross examination was very good – a worthwhile experience. A very good course” P Juhasz
“Cross examination was a great experience. Mike was fantastic at his job! Have really enjoyed this module. Overall really enjoyed the course, thank you Pete, Malc and Mike” H Lindup
“The overall case study and cross examination process is very well set up in order to reflect as accurately as possible a real case. Even having completed similar training in 2007 to become a DC, this was an excellent addition to this training and a great refresher with new things learnt. Cross examination was very worthwhile” R Fleming
