FALI Annual Conference - Pre Con Training Program

May 5-7, 2022,  Tampa, FL 


Sponsored by The Florida Association of Licensed Investigators for their members. The 8-hour program is the full certification course for the FTER Method and processes. It is part 1, 2, and 3 of the training curriculum. Successful completion of all three parts combined with testing can lead to earning the CFI-FTER designation as a Certified Forensic Interviewer – FTER Method.

The FTER Method is grounded in the theoretical understanding of testimonial evidence in its various forms. Practitioners must assimilate a comprehensive understanding of testimonial evidence relative to its creation and potential contamination for the purpose of recovery and analysis. The investigator must engage in critical thinking while evaluating testimonial evidence, as well as preparing for and conducting the interview. The professional interviewer must understand the depths of testimonial evidence in order to properly pursue recovery.

Training Objectives:
  • Train participants in the FTER forensic approach to interviewing and analysis of testimonial evidence
  • Gain an expert depth of understanding of truth defined by the relative perceptions and interpretations of witnesses
  • Recognize the anatomy of a lie and multiple motivations of deception
  • Enhance the interview process and increase the level of information recovered from witnesses
  • Earn and secure the nationally recognized designation of CFI-FTER as a Certified Forensic Interviewer.
