Our courses provide participants with nationally recognised qualifications to meet legislative and organisational competency requirements
ICETS has a reputation amongst Commonwealth and State regulatory agencies as going beyond the normal ‘pre-packaged’ courses and replacing them with interactive, customised and up to date packages delivered by industry professionals.
Our packages use the Australian Government Investigation Standards (AGIS) and the Investigation Procedure Standards of state based law enforcement agencies as the bench mark for our courses. From this our industry professionals (current government investigators) value add from their expertise to produce a creative, innovative and flexible solution to your training needs.
The Investigation Skills Course (ISC) provides the skills and knowledge to conduct an investigation to the same standard as expected by law enforcement organisations. The ISC is a highly relevant professional development initiative designed to compliment the current abilities of those already employed within government or non-government agencies with a statutory regulatory responsibility.

This course is a nationally accredited course designed for those personnel who have a role in monitoring and enforcing legislation or other statutory obligations on the public or private sector.

The Certificate IV in Government (Investigation) is a nationally accredited course designed for personnel who are authorised to investigate breaches of legislation, regulations, mandated government and organisational policy.

The Advanced Investigative Interviewing Course combines the studies of behavioural science and cognitive interviewing techniques to produce an effective process of drawing out relevant information from the reluctant, misleading or vague interviewee. The interviewing of people, whilst not an exact science is perhaps the most important aspect of any investigation. Circumstantial, physical and scientific evidence all have compelling probative value but, where such evidence simply does not exist, the only alternative method of establishing those facts is by the interviewing people directly or indirectly concerned in the matter as witnesses or suspects. Course Outline
Taking factual statements from witnesses is an essential part of the investigative process which invariably, will determine appropriate courses of action and in some cases, influence the outcome of an investigation. The factual statements course is designed for personnel who have a front line position of interviewing witnesses or complainants. The course provides the skills to elicit as much factual, relevant and admissible information in an evidentiary form for production in administrative, commercial or judicial tribunals. Course Outline
The personal risk management and safety course provides skills relating to the minimisation of personal risk whilst dealing with potentially volatile subjects. It also provides for the successful resolution of confrontational situations. The current trend in personal risk management and safety has shown the effectiveness of avoidance strategies, situational awareness and environmental design as factors contributing to the safety of individuals where risk is inherent. Course Outline
The course develops competencies related to assisting the investigation of alleged or suspected breaches of legislation, policies and procedures and the identification of appropriate preventative strategies. The intelligence analyst course is designed for personnel involved in the gathering of information, data or other forms of intelligence for the purpose of analysis. Such analysis relates to the mapping, profiling or précis of data into a format which can be used to direct investigation process or compliance monitoring.
