Your class has made the greatest and most direct impact on my assignment of any training class that I've taken.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to attend the Interview and Interrogation training presented by Paul Francois and Enrique Garcia.
This was, by far, one of the most useful classes I've attended since becoming an investigator.
...Provides useful tools necessary for assessing the veracity of a suspected child abuser, which goes a long way in helping to protect children.
The information that they have presented is highly relevant to my job, and was presented in a manner that was highly organized and very easy to digest.
You two are an effective teaching team, and your presentation of the material was consistently interesting, and intelligent without being too intellectualized.
Your instructional style is engaging and your tag-team style is highly effective.
I will continue to use and pass on this information because I really believe in the instructors and their approach.
Your class gave me the confidence and tools to interview the suspect for over 5 hours and to bring a closure to the case.
I highly recommend this training for any Probation staff who have the necessity to interview/interrogate individuals for investigation purposes.
