At the conclusion of this 8-hour course, participants will be provided with the information necessary to complete a thorough and legally defensible employment background investigation. Participants will discuss agency culture, generational characteristics, and recruitment practices that aid in finding the right fit for the applicant and department. Students will examine employment law and the importance of developing a background packet that follows best practices and produces great results. Investigative processes, tips, and various forms will be explored along with how to present the final product to the hiring managers. Students will discuss case studies to develop a thorough understanding of why we investigate and the value of taking the time and spending money upfront to avoid lawsuits. The background investigation conducted by you and your agency can be one of the most important factors taken into consideration when hiring as well as in civil and criminal courts. This course is necessary for any background investigator looking to expand the way they approach hiring in a time when finding the right employee can be a difficult task.
The course cancellation policy requires a minimum of a 15-day prior notice from the course start date when a student will not be attending the course. The notification to not attend will be made by email through our website, and if they identify no replacement student, cancellations with less than a 15-day notice will cause a department credit that can be used towards another future training event within one year from the original course date. We will charge no-shows without email notification the full course fee, even if the payment has not already been made. We offer a one-year future course credit as well for any no show that is charged a full course fee. This policy is in effect as of June 23, 2021, and you as a representative of your agency agree to abide by this policy by registering for any course. Please contact us by email or phone if you have questions about this cancellation policy. This policy is in place because of students that register for courses and take training slots without attending training, which removes the opportunity for another officer to attend. We pay the instructors teaching these programs based on the number of officers scheduled to attend the event, and we base our travel cost including instructor pay on registration fees. This policy is considered a binding contract between BSTS LLC and the student or student agency or company.
