Description:

IAC is happy to announce its 4 day Incident Investigator Certification Program. While this is not a certification offered by OPWDD, OPWDD has reviewed the IAC curriculum and has concurred that "the curriculum includes the critical elements we expect to be covered during the investigations training". Although, OPWDD is not requiring that voluntary agencies certify their trainers through IAC or any other entity, IAC believes that it is advantageous to offer this certification to assure consistency among all incident investigators and to standardize incident training. Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to demonstrate the skills and competencies necessary to conduct investigations.





This certification training will include topics and provide practical hands on preparation as it relates to the following:



��_���Communicating with people with developmental disabilities

��_���Preliminary investigations

��_���Investigative process

��_���Testimony and demeanor

��_���Interviews and Interrogations

��_���Written statements

��_���Understanding current protocols, regulations and guidance

��_���Independence of Investigators

��_���IRMA: reporting of incidents electronically



IAC has determined that the certification will be effective for 3 years upon which time participants will be required to attend a full day recertification training.

Included in the certification program is the opportunity for certified investigators to participate in a quarterly IAC investigator work group where current investigations, best practices and issues and obstacles are discussed. In addition, certified investigators will be placed on a separate email alert system and will be notified when new regulations and guidance is issued from OPWDD and other State entities.



Training can be scheduled at agency locations upon request, special pricing options are available



*Registration begins at 9:00am; Program begins at 9:30am
