What accredited courses are being adopted by the investigation and compliance monitoring sector as relevant for their workplace??

faqAs part of the on going review of courses the Public Sector Education and  Training Authority (PSETA) identified and responded to a need for more comprehensive investigative training in the public sector.

All of ICETS courses are developed and maintained to the nationally recognised competency standards set by industry.  These standards are listed by National Training Information Service (NTIS) www.ntis.gov.au.  Our course material is benchmarked to Commonwealth standards and customised to meet the jurisdictional, legislative and operational requirements of client agencies.

Are you able to cater for clients who may only have a small number of staff that require investigation skills training??

Yes.  While ICETS specialises in delivering qualifications customised for large agencies, we also run generic courses.  These courses are based on a cross section of legislation and state based agency policy & procedures.  These focus on legislation and policy relevant to the state in which training is delivered and ensure its relevancy to the agency personnel attending the course.

We are currently delivering training programs in QLD, NSW, W.A., NT, VIC, TAS, SA and ACT.

We can also create computer based training (CBT) for your agency which can be delivered by your own staff as an induction course or refresher course for personnel with specific responsibilities.

How do you ensure the investigation training programs you deliver are current??

Because you tell us!  ICETS works with client agencies to identify current best practice and the developed package is delivered by practitioners with current and relevant skills..

Do you cater for agencies which may wish to apply for government subsidies for training??

Financial incentives from the Australian Government may be available to your training staff.  ICETS through its partnership agencies can guide you through the process of determining whether you are eligible to apply for training subsidies under Australian Government Incentive Schemes.
