A refreshing way to do government online courses

There are numerous government online courses available online or face-to-face.  Investigators who work in or for the government may want to improve their skills, or may need to do such courses to be qualified for their roles.  There are even Australian Standards for investigators in government.  The courses may vary in their focus, but some do not highlight the need to address the legislative or regulatory framework.

Investigators, (let’s call them “administrative law investigators”), embark on a search for evidence of compliance, misconduct, or breaches of the law. Some investigators are individuals doing on-site inspections.  Others are commissions and boards of inquiry.  Whether they investigate under a common law or legislative framework, they need to know what they are doing. What are some of the things they can get wrong? And what are the ramifications of making mistakes in this mine field?

An alternative training course

This engaging series of 12 videos (with quizzes to match) is an alternative type of government online course.  The videos are full of real-life “war stories” and amusing anecdotes, told with the style of a true raconteur with experience and knowledge that is hard to beat: Ron Gipp. Each story, whether interesting, sad, tragic or downright funny, contains a serious message and practical suggestions for implementation of the right way to go about things.

But we are not just telling stories in our online video series.  We are explaining what to do and what not to do.  And by doing our quizzes you test your own learning – at your own pace.  What a refreshing way to learn!

Purchasing tickets will give each ticket holder 12 months access to this video series from the date of purchase. As an organiser, you can purchase several tickets, then allocate tickets to different users after purchase.

You can view this video series as a stand alone training tool, or together with our other online courses for government (or the regulated), such as “Investigations and Regulatory Powers”.
