Announcing a 3-part February webinar on background and social media investigations by computer forensics expert, Eli Rosenblatt:
Last week, Andrea Orozco (of Colorado’s Advanced Professional Investigations) wrote a compelling post to the email list for the National Council of Investigative and Security Specialists. In it, she relayed the heart-wrenching story of a time-sensitive appeal to investigators in her network that helped her firm and law enforcement find a child sexual abuse suspect who’d fled the state. Her story underscored the immense value of being active in our national and state associations.
Networking is often the grease that gets the gears going.
We attend periodic seminars and annual conferences held by state and national associations near and far. Of course, the discussions between and after the main sessions are often as valuable as the speakers and presenters. Networking is often the grease that gets the gears going. We can meet new people, see new perspectives, hear hilarious stories, and feel a little less alone in this often “lone wolf” work. This networking we all do during – and in between – periodic conferences and gatherings can often help us with remote record searches, door knocks, interviews, and more.
Taking It to the Next Level
It’s in this context of sharing valuable skills that we’ve launched Professionalinvestigators.Training – a new trusted source for online training that provides real-world expertise, concrete examples, and crucial perspectives for all types of investigators.
You might be an independent solo operator in a big city, in the first few years of building a solid practice doing criminal defense and background investigations. Or perhaps you are part of a large special investigation unit at a big insurance firm with nationwide offices that often takes you to far-flung locations. You may even be in-house at a law firm, tackling an array of different case types as they are handed down. Whichever type of investigator you are, the sessions available at Professionalinvestigators.Training have tools that are certain to take your work further.
Our first session covers all the basics and takes a deep dive into rapidly changing areas of investigation that we believe all professional investigators need to understand. It’s called the Social Media and Background Investigations Master Class 2015. More than your typical broad-brush webinar, this is a weekly 3-part immersion into the most essential information for building or enhancing your professional practice.
Going to presentations put on by national and state associations can help round-out the areas of your expertise, and can certainly help you network with professionals you can then call on when needed. In our sessions at Professionalinvestigators.Training, though, we’ll be taking it a step further, providing you with up-to-date training and personalized attention you won’t find elsewhere.
After our initial larger session, we’ll be offering a series of special customized trainings for a smaller groups of investigators. These more intimate sessions will be tailored to the questions and needs of the 15 investigators participating. In the first of these, host Eli Rosenblatt and special guest Tamara Thompson will open up our “Investigator Toolbox,” looking closely at some of the most under-utilized resources and how to maximize your time and energy online and off.
In the second session, Eli and special guest Hal Humphreys explore the often neglected elements of “the biz,” answering individual questions and working with a small group toward dramatically improving your promotional efforts and professional presence, both online and off.
These smaller sessions will be an unparalleled opportunity for peer networking and resource sharing with some of the most experienced and respected investigators in the industry.
We hope you can join us for one or all three online trainings. Register today!
