Course details

The way evidence is gathered has a major impact on successful regulatory control, enforcement and/or prosecution.

In partnership with Bond Solon, this practical, structured course equips those who have regulatory, enforcement and/or prosecution responsibilities with essential knowledge of the law, evidence, and procedure for their day-to-day roles in conducting investigations.

You’ll learn how to gather evidence to best practice standards, so that it’s relevant, admissible and credible.


This course can count towards the eight-day nationally recognised qualification – the Advanced Professional Certificate in Investigative Practice – or towards the two-day Advanced Award in Law, Evidence, and Procedure & Best Practice.
