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