Training for the Skill of Interviewing

Our interviewing training pedagogy explained

Interviewing is a skill, not a check box.

Like shooting hoops or playing piano, interviewing is a skill that requires learning and ongoing practice to be successful. The Certified FETI training pedagogy offers purposeful learning and practice-based courses designed to not just build the skill of effective trauma-informed interviewing, but improve and maintain proficiency through the duration of your career.

The FETI Methodology curriculum is standardized and contributed to and reviewed by Certified FETI Faculty (all active interviewing practitioners) and our Expert Advisory Committees - ensuring it meets the the diverse interviewing demands of professionals across many different domains.

Learning FETI’s science and practice-based curriculum, combined with the guidance and intensive practice from our Practical courses, will provide you with an interviewing skillset that is effective, neutral, and equitable.


Learning the FETI Interviewing Methodology.

Learning the fundamentals of the FETI Methodology is the first step on your way to building your FETI interviewing skill. Certified FETI offers 4 different learning courses that differ by duration, modality, and services included. Each training course will prepare you with varying degrees of knowledge on how to successfully conduct a FETI interview. It is recommended, but not required, to pair a learning course with a practice course.

Using the FETI® approach in higher education investigations allows us to gather information effectively and appropriately from all parties and witnesses, and interviewing for clarification ensures that the information gathered can be integrated into our investigations in a manner that is fair and equitable for all parties.

FETI Training has further empowered APS's SVS to provide effective policing while supporting those victimized. Other units within SVS have also expressed the same contentment that CACU noted during their time with FETI. FETI has both been a great addition to our training requirements and a positive supportive company to work with n achieving this goal.
