***Due to travel restrictions and continuing concerns around COVID-19, NCAC is offering all of our trainings, including customized, in a virtual format through the end of 2020. The training topics for Advanced Forensic Interviewing Training are pre-determined for the virtual classroom.
The NCAC can bring Advanced Forensic Interviewing Training to your community to train your multidisciplinary team or groups of professionals from surrounding communities. An Advanced Forensic Interviewing training is recommended for interviewers who have at least two years of interviewing experience. Because of unique needs and funding situations, the NCAC offers choices for Advanced Forensic Interviewing Training.
Based on emerging research and numerous discussions with communities across the country, the NCAC has created a standard Advanced Forensic Interviewing Training. This 3-day standard version is designed to bring together practice and research on a variety of topics relevant to Forensic Interviewers.
Included in the Advanced Forensic Interviewing Training is an Interview Practicum. This is an important learning exercise to provide instruction and advice to interviewers by viewing a sample of actual video recorded forensic interviews previously conducted by the training attendees. The Interview Practicum is a structured process that does not allow for criticism.
Because of unique local challenges, communities often need an Advanced Forensic Interviewing Training tailored to their specific needs. The NCAC will work with a community to develop an agenda which meets your training needs.

Each version of the training is designed for up to 30 trainees and includes one Trainer. The NCAC will provide training manuals for each training participant. In addition, the NCAC can provide Continuing Education Credits, if requested. NCAC Trainers are assigned, based on availability.
